Microsoft is pushing two fresh updates to Windows Insiders today. On the Fast ring, Insider testers can now get their hands on a handful of fixes with build 18361. On the Slow ring, Microsoft has pushed a relatively small cumulative update with build 18356.16.
Here's a look at what's new for Fast ring Insiders in build 18361.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- We fixed an issue preventing certain VMs from being able to install or update Windows Insider Preview builds – the VM would hang on the black screen with the Windows logo.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing unexpected BitLocker prompts to encrypt certain drives, and then subsequently failing to encrypt.
- Microsoft Store app updates do not automatically install on 18356+. As a workaround, you can manually check for, and install updates via the Microsoft Store app. Open Select "…" > "Downloads and updates" > "Get updates".
- Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).
- Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. We are partnering with Creative to resolve this issue.
- Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. We are investigating the issue.
- If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring, optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
For Windows Insiders on the Slow ring, here's how Microsoft describes the cumulative update:
Whether you're on the Fast ring or Slow ring, you can hit up Windows Update now to grab the latest builds. And, as always, you can check out the full release notes for build 18361 and build 18356.16 at the Windows Blog.
