Windows 10 Redstone Insider Preview build 14257 released to the fast ring



Microsoft has just rolled out a new build for Windows Insiders to play with — Windows 10 build 14257. In order to download this new build, you will need to be in the fast ring. This is part of Microsoft new development cycle for Redstone, the next big update to Windows 10.

Here’s what Microsoft’s Gabe Aul had to say about this new release:

As I mentioned last week, we’re at the beginning of a new development cycle for our next feature update to Windows 10. Teams are still early in their new feature work and changes in this build are mostly about laying the foundation for those features to start coming into builds. So you won’t see many visible changes quite yet. Also, the increased pace of the Fast ring (You’ll note that this build is only 6 revs newer than the last build we sent to the Fast ring) means that there will be fewer big changes between builds as opposed to this time last year when builds were about 30 days apart. There is a ton of coding work going on, but I want to set your expectations on how it will show up for you at our increased Fast ring pace.

This build contains mostly fixes and improvements on the back end and foundation of the operating system for upcoming new features, so don’t expect to see any visible changes just yet. Head over to Settings > Update & security to snag this release.

On top of this new build, Microsoft has also officially unveiled ninja monkey, to celebrate Year of the Monkey. Grab these wallpapers here.
