Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 11099. It’s the second Redstone build that we’ve seen so far. It’s also the second Redstone build that doesn’t have any front facing features.
Gabe Aul said in a previous post that from now on, known issues will be listed in the Insider Hub, which kind of sucks for me, as any time I have to write about the known issues of a build, I’ll have to use my Windows 10 test machine to get them.
Yes, I am typing this on a Type Cover 2.
Here are the known issues for the build:
- Log on for devices using Citrix XenDesktop may be broken. It is recommended that Insiders that use XenDesktop skip this flight by moving to the Slow ring.
- Applications that depend on Adobe Flash may crash upon launch. This will affect some version of Skype, QQ, WeChat, etc. This does not affect Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer.
- With this build, defaults for some applications will be reset. Music & Video will default to Windows Media Player. This can be reconfigured opening Cortana or Search and searching for “Choose default apps by file type” to open the correct settings page.
There are a couple things to note here. One is that I don’t recommend installing this build, just like the last one. There are no new features to try out, so all you’re doing by installing it is making yourself vulnerable to the known issues of the build.
The other thing to note is that Gabe Aul has promised faster fast ring builds, so if you’re really itching for a build, you can wait a week or two for the next one or you can just install 11099 and wait a week or two to actually get some cool new features.
Personally, I was hoping for OneDrive placeholders to make a return in this build. Hopefully, next time.
