Earlier this month, Microsoft released Windows 10 Build 17763.165 (KB4469342) to the Insiders in the Release Preview Ring. Today, the modified package of KB4469342 is rolling out to the same group of Insiders.
This updated version of KB4469342 will bump the system to Build 17763.167, up from 17763.165 which was released earlier this month. There are few reports which claim that the Windows Insiders in Release Preview Ring are seeing Build 17763.167 (updated version of KB4469342) but the changelog is not live just yet.
It could be possible that this update has addressed minor issues in the operating system and the company wants to test them before rolling out the changes to the general public. It’s likely that the cumulative update for the public will have a different KB, new build number and additional fixes.
An insider who received the update told us on Twitter that the KB number is unchanged and the update only shows up in Release Preview Ring. By the looks of things, the update was released a few hours ago and there is no official announcement available at the time of publication of this story.
A new CU has been released on the Release Preview Ring

As the company itself hasn’t provided any information on what’s changed with this cumulative update for Insiders, it can be assumed that the update has addressed minor issues.
You should not join the Release Preview Ring to grab this update as a newer and better update could be released soon.
New cumulative updates for public expected soon
In the support documents, Microsoft has stated that the reported bugs in Windows 10 October 2018 Update and April 2018 Update will be addressed later this month. This suggests that another cumulative update is planned and it could be released later today or this week.
It remains to be seen when a new cumulative update for Windows 10 will be released this month.
While another November cumulative update is expected to arrive later this week, the next Patch Tuesday updates with security and non-security fixes will begin rolling out on December 11.
Windows 10 October 2018 Update is also available for compatible devices and if you haven’t received the update yet, you’re recommended to wait.
