The saga of Windows 10 Mobile build 10536 continues - but it may soon get a happy ending, as it appears that things are finally lining up for its release in the next 24 hours or so.
Microsoft first started teasing 10536 as a possible candidate for the next Insider Preview release nearly a week ago - and given that it's now been over a month since the last one, build 10512, arrived, it certainly seems overdue. Microsoft's Gabe Aul said that the build would be released last Friday, but the last-minute discovery of a serious bug halted its rollout, and a new build was tentatively promised for this week instead.
It looked like a completely new build would be released instead of 10536 (particularly given that the newer build 10537 for PCs has since leaked). But instead, the company is lining up a new revision of the build that it rejected; in a tweet today, Aul said that build 10536.1004 is in the latter stages of its internal testing, and all indications are looking good for its release:
In a further tweet, he added that if things continue to go well, "then tomorrow AM (Redmond time) is most likely ETA for posting to Fast ring."
Microsoft revealed over the weekend that around 200 Windows Insiders had been able to install build 10536.1003 on their handsets before the build's rollout was cancelled last week.
