Microsoft: New Windows 10 Insider Preview builds won't arrive until next week

If you've been drumming your fingers all week hoping that a new Windows 10 Insider Preview would land any day now, you'll have to keep drumming for now.

The last release from the Redstone 2 Development Branch was build 14915, which made its way to PCs and phones in the Fast ring a week ago today. But Microsoft said today that it won't be releasing any more builds this week.

The reason for this is that the Windows Insider Engineering Team is making some back-end changes that affect how builds are assessed and prepared for release, as a post in the Feedback Hub explained today:

We are performing some upgrades this week to our services that are used to approve and monitor builds from the Development Branch to our Windows Insiders. Once the upgrade is complete, just as we flight the OS through the rings, we will be flighting the service upgrades through the internal rings first.

That means there will be no new builds this week, but the team said that it plans "to return to schedule next week".

Additionally, as a result of these ongoing efforts, Microsoft said that any changes Insiders make to their settings for the preview program "will not take effect until the service upgrade has finished".

It added: "If you are setting up a new device or changing rings, your device will not receive new builds available to that ring until the upgrade is complete."
