Windows 10 Build 14257

A new Windows 10 update for Insiders is rolling out only seven days after the release of the previous one. Windows 10 Build 14257 is available for testers enrolled in the Fast Ring, but depending on feedback and community chatter, the slow ring channel could get it soon.

Windows 10 Redstone Preview Build 14257 includes fixes for the previously discovered issues. Microsoft is very knee on refining the overall performance and experience of the operating system, so no new features or UI changes are included in the latest Windows 10 updates.

Gabriel Aul, the head of the Windows Insider program, noted on Twitter that Windows 10 won’t receive any new features in the initial builds of the Redstone. Microsoft is only beginning the development of the next feature update. Any changes in the update are mostly foundation work for the upcoming changes.

As mentioned above, this build has been released only seven days after the previous one. Microsoft also revealed that the increased pace of the Fast ring means the new Windows 10 Redstone builds won’t come with too many big changes.

Microsoft’s Windows engineering team doesn’t have enough time to include significant new features as they also have to lay the foundation for future work and fix bugs at the same time.
