Microsoft has a thing for late night releases but if you were eagerly looking forward to getting your hands on the Release to Manufacturing build, you are in luck! The company has started to roll out Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM build to PC Insiders in the Fast ring. This is the final build, which means if you were waiting for a more stable release, it won’t get any better than this.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM build 16299.15 brings more bugs and fixes to the operating system, but the company hasn’t shared any chaneglog to go with it. Since this is highly expected to be the final build, from now on Microsoft will only send some last minute bug fixes through cumulative updates and patches via Windows Update, instead of new builds.

Windows 10 build 16299.15 is the last preview build that the Insiders will receive before they move ahead to the Redstone 4 development that is already being tested by those on the Skip Ahead.

The company hasn’t officially announced sending Windows 10 Fall Creators Update into the RTM mode, but it did say that it will now be servicing this build via Windows Update – not to miss the fact that the build number hasn’t been changed.

“We have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16299.15 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” the company wrote in its announcement. “As we prepare to release the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to the world on October 17th, we will now start testing out servicing this build with the Cumulative Updates via Windows Update.”

Those on the Slow ring are already testing the Fall Creators Update Preview Build 16299. If you are on the Slow ring, you should be able to receive the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM build in the next couple of days.
