Another new insider build just dropped.
This one is Windows 10 Redstone build 14379 & is for both PC and Mobile.

This week we have been hosting a Continuum App Contest in Redmond and it’s been really cool to see the awesome apps our dev Insiders have created. I installed the finalists’ apps and love how useful they are to my day-to-day—on both PC AND Phone. You all should check them out, there are some that are quite—Insider-y :yesnod:

Another new insider build just dropped today.
This one is Windows 10 Redstone build 14383 & is for both PC and Mobile.

I used Windows Update to install it & used "disk cleanup" afterwards to dump all the leftover files.

The watermark is gone now so it appears there will be no more watermarks on Redstone which will be the Anniversary Update (AU) to be released August 2.

This is the second RTM of Windows 10, the third wave will start after AU comes out.

*I tested DualBootPro v1.1 on this one (& the last couple), it works very well, I also did a BCD backup on this new build & on the Windows 10 latest build after installing todays (Tuesday) cumulative update, DBP1.1 worked very well on both.

Today the 2nd cumulative update for build 14393.
The latest update changed it from 14393.3 to 14393.5

fixes:
We have improved reliability and performance of Microsoft Edge with AdBlock and LastPass extensions enabled. These extensions should continue to work after installing other extension updates from the Store.
We fixed an issue causing battery to drain due to runaway CPU processes while a device is idle. We also fixed a battery life issue due to the proximity sensor always running on some devices.
We fixed an issue causing Store apps to stop launching due to a licensing issue.
We have fixed an issue that results in Windows Updates being delayed on systems with Connected Standby.
We fixed an issue where the Korean IME would not have the correct composition on some custom TSF3 edit controls on PC.
We fixed an issue where you might not be able to type in text into Search or some Store apps without having to restart the process.
We have fixed an issue where keyboard input on some Windows tablet devices would not rotate to landscape normally.

What’s next for the Windows Insider Program

What’s next for the Windows Insider Program

We love all of the participation that we’ve seen in the Windows Insider Program. As the product evolves, we’ll be thinking of ways to reach even more people and also give back to those who have been so loyal to Windows 10 the past year. We will build out the new generation of the Windows Insider Community.

>snip<

For those of you who love installing new builds – don’t worry, we’ll be pushing out new builds again in August!

Yesterday I installed the Windows 10 official Anniversary Update (over W10 x86) using windows update on a test rig, all went well.
AFAICT all my apps work as before incl. the 16-bit one, I haven't run "Disk cleanup" yet though as I still want to be sure first all is good.

Before installing it I tested "How to disable Auto Update in 1607?" (using gpedit) to see how well that worked after first setting it up on the Main Rig, it worked perfectly after I chose "Notify for download and notify for install".

SOoo it appears Redstone 1 testing is over, probably will start a new thread for Redstone 2 testing.


note: Windows 10 TH2 (Threshold) is version 1511
Windows 10 R1 (Redstone) is version 1607
