Microsoft last week released a new Insider preview build for Insiders for Windows 10 PC and Tablets. Today the company is releasing the Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 16257 to Insiders. The SDK build number generally is the same as the build released for Slow ring insiders, 16251.

The company has provided the following release notes for the new SDK which comes with some known issues:

  • Designer fails to render: When viewing the XAML in the Designer Window in Visual Studio, the controls fail to render. This can be resolved by using Visual Studio 2017.3 Preview.
  • Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms (need to see if fixed)
    When building apps on previous platforms, you may get a build error:
