Yesterday, the day of the Windows Developer Day, the Windows Insiders Blog came with a small but important update:
UPDATE 10/10: As part of final preparations for the general availability of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on Oct. 17th, we have begun releasing Build 16299.15 to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring. If you are in the Release Preview ring and don’t see this build offered yet – be patient as it will be rolling out over the course of the next few days to everyone in the Release Preview ring.
This, almost certain, means that we are done with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and this (version 16299.15) will be the final release version to be released next week October 17th. The Release Preview ring is considered to be the most secure ‘preview’ ring for people who want to get bits early but don’t want to take the risks of breaking things that come with other less secure build flights such as the Fast or Slow Ring.
So there you have it … Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is cooked and done if you ask me.
They also released the Windows 10 SDK at the Windows Developer Day yesterday (10/10), another sign that things are ready. The SDK usually locks down way before locking down Windows itself, because software developers need a solid base to build their Fall Creators Update versions on, still they released it yesterday. A special day with lots of Ten numbers, waiting for next week with both Ten and Seventeen in the name. But what’s in a name?
