First Windows 10 Redstone 2 preview release appears for Insiders as build 14901

It appears the Windows team is ready or at least gearing up to release a new build to Insiders that follows the path of Redstone 2 development. A friend of the Windows Insider community Zac Bowden twitted an early screen grab of a new build title Windows 10 Insider Preview 14901 that is accompanying a Windows Defender update release.

The screenshot was taken early enough that it is preceding the usual Windows blog chalked full of build notes, details and warnings.

As mentioned a few days ago, the Windows team is said to be focusing on PC Insider builds initially and as such, this new build release appears to be only hitting PC devices for the time being.

We’ll keep an eye for more details on preview 14901 and an official update blog as things progress. Until then, Insiders are encouraged to proceed with a bit of caution when downloading and installing this latest Redstone 2 preview.

Happy downloading, Insiders!
