Microsoft is today rolling out the Windows 10 Build 17134 to the Windows Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview Ring, which suggests that the update could be rolled out to the public by the end of this month if everything goes as per the plan. Microsoft might be planning to address the Settings app bug with a cumulative update which could be released as soon as next week.
Windows 10 Build 17134 is reportedly the RTM candidate of Windows 10 April 2018 Update and it comes with fixes for some reliability issues that have been discovered in Build 17133.
A couple of days ago, we reported about a bug in Windows 10 Settings where selecting app defaults options crashes the app. Microsoft’s Windows Insider team has acknowledged the bug and the company has also confirmed that it was not widespread based on the amount of the data available. It’s likely that Microsoft will address this bug with a cumulative update.
It’s still not clear if Windows 10 version 1803 will be called April 2018 Update or when the general public rollout will begin. Before rolling out the update to all users, Microsoft will listen to Insider feedback and fix remaining issues.
Windows 10 version 1803 is a big update for the operating system as it brings some substantial improvements in terms of both features and improvements. The Fluent Design in Windows 10 is receiving a big update in this release as Microsoft is bringing the acrylic effect to other parts of the operating system such as Microsoft Store.
Needless to say, Fluent Design is evolving but in the latest version of the operating system, Microsoft is finally pushing this makeover one step forward. For example, Microsoft is adding Reveal effects and acrylic in more essential areas, like the Start menu.
If any substantial delay happens, Microsoft could miss its target of launching the update in April. Microsoft originally planned to launch the Windows 10 version 1803 in April and with the name of Spring Creators Update. The next version of Windows 10 is codenamed Redstone 4 and version 1803 refers to the compiling date. The first two digits represent the year, while 03 represents the month, March.
Microsoft has already fixed the blocking bug in Windows 10 version 1803 and Build 17134 has no major bugs. If you’re interested, you can upgrade your PC to the newest version of Windows 10 by joining the Windows Insider program.
