The Release Preview Ring, which usually previews a full release by a week or so, saw 17763.1 at the same time as the Windows 10 October Update was announced yesterday.

Release Preview users were waiting to see the latest version before it was released to consumers, but it never arrived.  This is a change in how the rings work, but it was done on purpose according to Brandon LeBlanc on the Windows Insider Team.

Release Preview is now for servicing validation and rollout testing.

This is a stable release and yours truly has tested the install on Release Preview.
