Windows 10 Preview Builds to Come More Frequently

According to Gabe Aul, it’s about to get hot in their kitchen…

I’ve spent a great deal of my early to mid-adult life in the South Eastern United States. When you hear someone tell you that it’s about to “get hot in the kitchen,” what they mean is that things is fixin’ ta get real busy. According to Gabe Aul, the Microsoft exec in charge of the Windows 10 Insider program for the Windows 10 Technical Preview, its fixin’ ta get hot in the Windows 10 kitchen.

Now, what exactly does that mean? Very simply – more builds.

According to a 2015-03-09 blog, and then reiterated in an email sent earlier today 2015-04-20, Windows Insiders are about to see the frequency of builds pick up.

Microsoft has released the second build of Windows 10 Mobile for Windows Phone; and from all accounts, including my own look at the new Mobile OS, it’s still a VERY early build for Windows Phone.

That’s a kind way of saying its currently a train wreck.

Yeah…

It’s not really ready for anyone to look at yet. In fact, if you tried to install it on one of the 35 different, supported, Lumia phones and decided it wasn’t for you, it’s quite possible that returning that phone to a Windows Phone 8.x state bricked your phone. If that’s happened to you, you may be able to unbrick it with the Windows Phone Recovery Tool. If you’re having trouble with a Lumia branded Windows Phone, you should use the Lumia Software Recovery Tool.

All of that notwithstanding , Gabe Aul again has stated that Windows 10 Insiders should begin seeing builds come much faster on the Fast Ring. Aul’s email specifically states,

“Based on your feedback, we’re going to send out builds more frequently to Windows Insiders that have selected “Fast” preview builds. That means you can getting fresher code with all of the features and fixes, more often – but builds may include more bugs. Read my blog for more details. To switch to slow or fast builds on your PC, go to Settings>Update & recovery>Advanced options. On your phone, go to the Windows Insider app.”

I’m certain that given the above referenced blog entry from early March, and the fact that Windows Insiders haven’t seen a new official build hit the Fast Ring since the release of Build 10049 about two weeks ago, Gabe has been fielding a great many questions on “when” the next build will hit.

Many Windows 10 Insiders have specific issues blocking them from moving forward with their evaluations and I know they’re looking for specific fixes. Specifically, I’m looking for a fix for my disappearing ink bug. A fix for that can’t come soon enough.

UPDATE: While working on this article, Build 10061 was released. I’ve got it installed on my Dell Latitude 10 ST2. We’ll see if my issue is resolved and if it’s worth installing on my Surface Pro 3. I’ll keep you posted.
