Windows 10 Anniversary Update nears RTM with bugfixes galore

Windows 10 logoWith its August 2 release date growing closer, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is nearing completion.

A steady stream of new builds for Windows Insiders on the fast track has been released over the past few weeks. The latest build, 14383, came out today and includes a wide range of fixes. As with many of its predecessors, this build has been made available simultaneously for Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile; Microsoft is intending to ship the Anniversary Update simultaneously for PC, phone, and Xbox One when that release date arrives.

Windows Central is reporting that according to its sources, the build one newer than today's release, 14384, is the first candidate for what would formerly be known as Release To Manufacturing (RTM). With Windows now being delivered "as a service," the old RTM terminology isn't favored by Redmond any more—not least because many people will download the update rather than have it preinstalled by a PC manufacturer—but the concept that RTM represents endures. The "RTM" build will be the one released on August 2 to people in the stable channel, and then after several months of regular Patch Tuesday updates, it will be released as the Current Branch for Business.

Once the Anniversary Update is done, the Insider program will of course continue to receive new builds. These will be previews of the "Redstone 2" release, which is expected some time in 2017.
