Windows 10 for PCs build 16296 now available in the Slow ring

As Microsoft starts preparing for the launch of the Fall Creators Update in just 20 more days, it's rapidly increasing the cadence at which new builds are pushed out to Insiders and in the same week that Build 16296 was pushed to the Fast ring, Microsoft has now made it available to Insiders on the Slow ring, signifying that these builds are increasingly stable and nearly ready for release.

To recap, as Microsoft now has its sights on RTM, no new features have been added but a round of polishing up the code has yielded the following fixes to the OS:

  • We fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn’t create a VM on 3rd party network storage.
  • We fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names.
  • We fixed an issue where gaming apps using WebView with heavy use of HTML canvas might have unexpectedly had very low FPS in recent flights.

As always, you can grab the new build by going to the Windows Update tab in the Settings app.
