Microsoft released a new Windows 10 2020 Insider Preview Build to Fast ring last night bringing the long awaited Cloud Download feature along with a new tablet experience for convertible PCs. The Windows maker has also pushed new cumulative updates to Insiders in the Release Preview ring.

Build 18362.329 and 18363.329 from Windows 10 19H1 and 19H2 are now available to Release Preview ring Insiders. Both the updates carry the same two fixes:

What’s New with Windows 10 20H2: Theme-Aware Start Menu, Touch-Friendly Taskbar, and Xbox Game Pass for PC

  • We fixed an issue where on devices with LTE capability, some SIM cards from certain carriers would not work correctly.
  • We fixed several issues resulting in bugchecks on some devices.

Why two builds if they bring the same bug fixes? Microsoft is currently testing its servicing pipeline for this fall's Windows 10 19H2 feature update. Around ten percent of Release Preview ring has now started to test this update along with the Slow ring.

"To offer a clarification on these releases - 19H1 and 19H2 share the same servicing content," Microsoft wrote last night. "That means they share the same Cumulative Update package." The Windows maker added the following:

For the small subset of Windows Insiders (the 10%) in Release Preview who were given the option to install 19H2, an enablement package is downloaded from Windows Update that turns on the 19H2 features. This *changes* the build number for the OS from 19H1 Build 18362 to 19H2 Build 18363. Because they use the same servicing content, the build revision number (the number that comes after the dot) will always match between 19H1 and 19H2. As we continue to test our servicing packages in the Release Preview ring, Insiders on 19H1 and 19H2 will get a single Cumulative Update with the same fixes.
