Microsoft has already confirmed that the development of Windows 10 Redstone 5 update is in the final stage. Microsoft will soon start focusing on stabilization for Windows 10 Redstone 5 and it appears that the software giant is preparing Redstone 6 builds for the Skip Ahead Ring Insiders.
Microsoft has internally compiled a new Windows 10 Redstone 6 (19H1) build which suggests that the work on next big release has already begun. Windows 10 Redstone 6 update is expected to arrive for the general public in spring of 2019 and the Insiders should get the first Redstone 6 build soon.
Microsoft has also suspended the Skip Ahead ring and at some point in the future, this ring would be reopened when it starts testing Redstone 6 builds with the Insiders.

“We are getting close to the point in the development cycle where our focus will be on stabilization for RS5. As part of the stabilization process, we have “forked” RS5 into its own branch called “RS5_RELEASE” just like we did for RS4 and RS3 before that. Insiders will see this branch change with today’s build,” Dona Sarkar explains.
“And like we did with RS3 and RS4, we are getting ready to start releasing builds to Insiders who choose to “skip ahead” to the next release of Windows 10. These builds will come from the RS_PRERELEASE branch.”
