Windows 10 Redstone 4 build 17134 now rolling out for Insiders

While I don't have access to all the facts, I think that Microsoft did the right decision in postponing the release of the next Windows 10 feature update.

Windows Latest wrote in a blog post: "While Microsoft remained tight-lipped on the reason for this decision, it's believed that a blocking bug has delayed the release". However, a blocking bug was discovered that delayed the release to the public nearly at the last minute. Stories did however seem to work as intended on Windows 10 PCs which are naturally more powerful than Windows 10 Mobile smartphones and could handle the extra processing necessary for the real-time video editing.

With the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17134 (RS4), which is available to Windows Insiders on the Fast ring, Microsoft appears to have addressed these issues.

Explaining the issue for the first time, Sarkar explains: "As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix". In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example.

Microsoft says that instead of shipping the Springs Creators Update faulty as it was, and then delivering an update later to fix the issues, it made a decision to hold off on deploying the defective build altogether. On the very day, though, rumours spread of a serious last-minute show-stopping bug that had caused Microsoft to pull the release, and a week on the company has confirmed that is indeed the case while simultaneously downplaying its severity. Now, build 17134 is Microsoft's next attempt at an RTM build. It has no new features but simply corrects the problems in Build 17133 - which should have been the version that we saw being released as stable.
