The development of Windows 10 Redstone continues at Microsoft, and the company is now expected to ship a new preview build to members of the Insider program as soon as the next week.
The leader of the Windows Insider effort, Gabriel Aul, has confirmed in a short tweet that the company is internally testing Windows 10 Redstone build 11097, but he has refused to provide any specifics regarding the possible release date.
He has, however, mentioned that there are no big changes implemented in this build, but only small refinements, bug fixes, and performance improvements, so should 11097 be released to testers, no exciting updates are to be expected.
Microsoft rolled out the most recent Windows 10 Mobile build on Friday, so now the company is supposed to do the same next week for PC users. But depending on how development on this particular build advances, the company can decide whether it wants to push it to testers or wait a little bit longer until a more reliable and stable build is compiled.
Microsoft promised to release Windows 10 builds at a faster pace in 2016, but since no new builds have been shipped this year as of January 10, some of the users are wondering whether the company can really deliver on its promise or not.
Gabe Aul says that it's just a matter of time until the first build arrives, and then the Windows team can focus on providing us with more and more releases than in the previous year. Of course, it remains to be seen if this strategy can indeed be implemented, but it's pretty clear that users aren't willing to wait any longer.
Windows 10 Redstone is projected to debut in the summer of this year with big improvements to the core operating system, including support for Microsoft Edge browser extensions.
