May be the RTM candidate

May be the RTM candidate

Microsoft has now pushed out a new build for Windows 10 RS4 which includes fixes from KB4100375 as well as some fixes for general reliability of the OS.

That didn't happen. And while Microsoft was awfully quiet about what went wrong for the past week, it finally opened up today with the release of build 17134.1, which is the new "RTM" build of Windows 10 version 1803. While Microsoft has not officially named the update (despite using the term "Spring Creators Update" in materials several times) sources state that it will be called the "Windows 10 April 208 Update", according to a video discovered by Microsoft aficionado WalkingCat. The company said that the build carries no new features and only brings fixes for some issues.

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. However, a blocking bug was discovered that delayed the release to the public nearly at the last minute.

Microsoft admitted yesterday that the reason it did not launch the Spring Creators Update for Windows 10 last week was because of technical issues the company encountered with the supposed final release. These issues could have potentially led to more BSODs on PCs.

Nevertheless, Windows 10 build 17134 is the new RTM build for the spring feature update.

The update is rolling out as a preview build to the Windows 10 Insider team, a group of testers that receive pre-release builds in order to test things and make sure features are implemented without any major issues.

Maybe this update was meant to be pushed out to Windows phones too but the handsets it was tested on just couldn't cope with the extra features.

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