The newest build for Windows 10, Redstone 2, has been made available to users on Fire Ring two days ago. The first couple of builds that will come with Redstone 2 are said to not bring out many features that will please the usual customer who doesn’t understand all of the under-the-hood issues of an operating system, but rather the tech savvies that enjoy to explore more in-depth the OS.
The last update for Windows 10, the Anniversary Update, was actually Redstone 1, and this second one is set to fix the high number of problems found in the first update. However, people that tried out the new build say that a lot of issues are still there, like the ones with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
If you are interested in a, so to say, new feature that the first build of Windows 10 Redstone 2, Microsoft did add a notification area for the File Explorer, which will let users know about all the opportunities they can accomplish with the help of Windows 10. We’re not mad at this new feature, it can help out some newbies out there.
A post from Windows Insider acknowledges that Microsoft has yet to release the Anniversary Update to smartphone users as well – but this might not be the worst thing considering how many problems we saw with the desktop version. However, Microsoft is unapologetic about this, considering that they should first release new builds and updates to PCs, then focus on RTM versions. They even officially admitted that builds for Redstone 2 will appear on personal computers with a few weeks earlier than on smartphones.
If you’re interested on when the actual update will come to Windows 10, the company confirms Redstone 2 won’t be ready until 2017. And as rumors say, we might even meet a Redstone 3 version of Windows 10 in the same year.
