Windows 10 Redstone 4 build 17134 now rolling out for Insiders

Windows 10 Redstone 4 build 17134 now rolling out for Insiders

We were disappointed when Microsoft delayed the Spring Creators Update, its next big overhaul of the Windows 10 operating system, but also curious to know what was serious enough to halt the much-hyped update, and now Microsoft has revealed why.

In a rather interesting move, the official Instagram app has just updated on Windows 10 devices with several new features just a day or so after it was made unavailable on Windows phones. This caused Microsoft to delay the public release indefinitely, and demote build 17133 from RTM status. Lacking a changelog, here's the complete statement released by Microsoft around today's Windows 10 Redstone 4 17134 release. As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. The company said that the build carries no new features and only brings fixes for some issues.

This build has no new features and includes the fixes from KB4100375 as well as some fixes for general reliability of the OS.

Though Microsoft has never actually confirmed a release date or name for the elusive Windows 10 Spring Creators Update (aka version 1803), many expected it to arrive on 10 April's patch Tuesday, with build 17133 hitting the Release Preview ring of the Windows Insider programme.

Past releases have shown that even smaller Windows updates result in an increased number of bugs and issues that Windows users experience after installation.

It would probably take another week for Microsoft to release today's build to all the rings to test it for any last minute issues.

So, it seems Build 17133 was causing a higher percentage of BSOD and could have been a disaster in making for Microsoft.
