Windows 10 build 19041.207 is now available in the Slow ring, but still not Release Preview

Unsurprisingly, Microsoft released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 20H1 to Insiders on the Slow ring today. It brings the build number to 19041.207.

The company typically updates the Insider Preview for 20H1 on Patch Tuesday. In fact, build 19041 was first released back in December. Microsoft has been letting it cook with cumulative updates for a few months before releasing it.

But oddly enough, what's now known as version 2004 still isn't available in the Release Preview ring, the ring of the Windows Insider Program that's dedicated to updates that are about to roll out to the general public. The 2004 version number indicates that the feature update should be finalized in April, probably followed by a May general release. In other words, there doesn't seem to be a reason that it wouldn't be in the Release Preview ring, and Microsoft certainly hasn't said anything.

As for today's build, the team still hasn't published a blog post about it, so there's no way of actually telling what's new. In fact, when build 19041.173 was released a few days ago, the team waited a few hours to tell anyone about that one as well. If you want to take a guess, it's probably best to assume that it includes similar fixes to the rest of the Patch Tuesday updates.

Update: Microsoft has finally published a blog post. Here ate the fixes:

  • We fixed an issue that causes the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service (rpcss.exe) to close unexpectedly and the device stops working. Then you must restart the device.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Device Enrollment Status Page (ESP) on managed devices to stop responding if a policy that requires a restart is installed on the device.
  • We fixed an issue that might prevent the rear camera flash from functioning as expected on devices that have a rear camera.
  • It also includes the latest security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Media, Windows Shell, Windows Management, Windows Cloud Infrastructure, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Authentication, Windows Virtualization, Windows Core Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Update Stack, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.
