Windows 10 Redstone second preview build:

Microsoft released the first Insider Preview build of Windows 10 Redstone (RS1) about a month ago. As the company promised to send out Preview builds at a faster rate starting this month, Fast Ring members are still patiently waiting for the next preview to arrive on their PCs. If you too are eagerly looking forward to the next Insider build, it is expected to arrive very soon as Gabe Aul has started talking about it with his fans on Twitter.

Over the weekend, Aul tweeted to his followers that he was running Windows 10 build 11097 on his own PC internally. Remember, the last build sent out to Insiders carried the number 11082. The latest digits might seem quite ahead of the last update rolled out to Windows Insider Program, it doesn't mean that the upcoming build will bring any major features. Many of these builds rolled out by Microsoft focus on performance enhancements of the features already introduced, however, Redstone updates are highly expected to bring some feature changes too.

Redstone is Microsoft's expected revision of the operating system as Windows 10 enters into its second stage of development. While it's not confirmed what Redstone updates will bring to Windows 10, improvements to Cortana, improved Action Center, support for third-party extensions in Edge, and changes to the notifications hub are expected. Windows 10 Redstone update is expected to arrive in two waves, first in June and then in October this year, tentatively.

Gabe Aul confirmed that the upcoming build will not carry any major changes and will be released in "a few more days." He also tweeted that the next Windows 10 Redstone preview build won't be introducing any design changes to the operating system.

Are you looking forward to testing out the next preview build coming to Windows 10? Make sure that you aren't trying these Insider Preview builds on your primary devices. As Gabe had warned earlier that a faster rate of preview builds also means more chances of bugs getting through Microsoft's internal testing possibly affecting different functions of the operating system.
