Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 17760 to the Fast ring with no known issues

Earlier today, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 17758 to the Slow ring, and keen observers were quick to notice that the same build is in the Fast and Slow rings. But just four hours later, there's now a new build in the Fast ring, build 17760.

There aren't any new features, since Windows 10 October 2018 Update development is winding down. In fact, we could see the RTM build as early as next week. As it stands right now, this isn't it, according to the release notes.

Here's what's been fixed and improved:

  • The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This does not mean this is the final build as we are not done yet. We’re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release.

  • We fixed the issue causing apps that use .NET 4.7.1 to not work correctly in previous builds.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in rendering issues in certain types of PDFs in Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue that could cause a crash when using swipe to navigate back in Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft Edge crashing after pressing F12 on certain webpages if certain extensions were enabled.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the icons on Microsoft Edge error pages not being visible on localized builds.

  • We fixed an underflow in the Windows Security app that could result in the UI unexpectedly showing a very large number of threats had been found.

Interestingly, there are no known issues in this build. That's great news, and it means that the final build is very close. When there is one, it will be promoted to the Slow ring and then to the Release Preview ring.

The team also noted that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update will be compatible with Tencent games. Apparently, compatibility was an issue, and Microsoft and Tencent worked together on this.
