Today, Microsoft announced the rollout of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14936, the latest release from the Redstone 2 Development Branch. The new build is available for both PCs and phones in the Fast ring.
As ever, there are some fixes, and some issues to be aware of.
First up, here's what Microsoft has fixed in the new build for PCs:
And here are the known issues for PC users to consider before installing the new build:
Microsoft also highlighted a couple of other points affecting Insiders, starting with 'authentication changes affecting connectivity to NAS devices and home file servers'. Microsoft's Dona Sarkar explained:
After updating to the latest Insider Preview builds, you may have noticed that shared devices on your home network have disappeared from your home network folder. You may have also noticed your mapped network drives are not available. If you change your network to “private” or “enterprise”, it should start working again. For more information on this behavior change, see this Microsoft Security Bulletin.
And Dona added a further note related to Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) updates:
External drive connected to your Mac. Time Machine can back up to an external drive connected to. Download Time Machine for Mac to see what day of the week any date in history fell on. Most of the time, you’ll restore a Time Machine backup by booting into Recovery Mode. This involves shutting down your Mac, and then restarting it while holding down the ‘Command+R’ buttons. When you see the Apple logo, release these buttons and your Mac should successfully boot into Recovery. To see the size of a specific file or folder, click it once and then press Command-I. To see storage information about your Mac, click the Apple menu in the top-left of your screen. Choose About This Mac and click the Storage tab. For Time Machine backups, it's good to use a drive that has at least twice the storage capacity of your Mac. Can you back up multiple Macs to one-time machine. It is possible to use the same Time Machine disk for multiple Macs. When Time Machine runs backups it saves them under Backups.backupdb folder followed by a folder with the name of the Mac, e.g. Backups.backupdbMac’s MacBook. Download time machine backup mac.
WSL will install Ubuntu version 16.04 (Xenial) instead of Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) in an upcoming release. This change will apply to Insiders installing new instances (lxrun.exe /install or first run of bash.exe). Existing instances with Trusty will not be upgraded automatically. Users can upgrade their Trusty image to Xenial using the do-release-upgrade command. Full WSL release notes can be found here.
If you're okay with all those fixes, known issues and other bits, then you should be okay to install build 14936 on your PC. If you're not, then it may be best for you to switch to the Slow or Release Preview rings for now - and remember, it's best to avoid installing these less stable Fast ring builds on your main PC.
