Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring can get their hands on another new build today. Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 preview build 17133, which hit both the Fast and Slow rings just last week, is now available for Release Preview Insiders.
The build comes as Microsoft is winding down testing for the Windows 10 spring update, which is believed to be in line for an April 10 rollout, though Microsoft hasn't officially confirmed any dates just yet. As with 17133's Slow ring rollout, not everyone in Release Preview will be immediately targeted to receive the update. However, you can initiate it manually by heading to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Microsoft says it is aiming for full availability by April 9.
Here's a recap of the small list of fixes in this build:
- We fixed an issue resulting in certain devices with BitLocker enabled unexpectedly booting into BitLocker recovery in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to change the display resolution when there were 4 or more monitors connected, due to the confirmation prompt hanging when you selected "Keep changes".
- We fixed an issue where clicking suggested search terms when typing in the Microsoft Edge URL bar didn't do anything.
If you're on the Release Preview ring, build 17133 should be available now as "Feature update for Windows 10, version 1803."
Would like to see an ISO by the weekend. Getting ready to do a drive swap/clean install.
Installed on my SP4 M3 the other day and am impressed with how much smoother inking is as well as the on screen keyboard. Trackpad is noticably smoother as well. Only area I am finding a little stutter in is when I bring up the task switcher.
Same here, the only minor issues I've seen are with some of the reveal effects, nothing big and it can always be patched. I also noticed that Windows Defender is now fixed.
Great feedback, people. Good to know :)
I don't think there are more users with 4+ monitors than users of touch keyboard, yet their issue was solved and touch keyboard is aweful since RS4. Priorities.
So this is the RTM build, as we thought. I've turned off updates for now, as I want to use the ISO to do an in-place upgrade
So are we not gonna talk about the fact that the Internet thinks April 10th for a public release. But then later in the article it says that the Release Preview is aiming for full availability by April 9th. That's like 1 day before public release. That doesn't make sense. I don't think April 10th is the final public release. More like April 17th or later. I don't wanna be a negative nancy here but I mean come on.
I agree. I think MS will give the release preview at least a week or two. And they learned from previous releases. The initial final release was never tested by insiders :P
So hey… Improvements all around :)
Right! And the fact that Microsoft hasn't even announced anything. They did with last years April update, they made an announcement 13 days before on March 29th. So the fact that they haven't made any announcement is weird.
