We are now 11 builds into the Redstone 3 development process for the upcoming Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 on PCs and tablets.
This update, which should come out around the September time frame, will be the fourth major feature update for Windows 10 since its initial release in June of 2015. This year will also mark the first time Microsoft has released two feature updates for Windows 10 within the same calendar year which is their long term plan for the OS's feature update cycle.
Last week Microsoft released their first Redstone 3 Slow Ring build to testers, Build 16232, and they have now made ISOs available for that build over on the Windows Insider website.
If you head over to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewiso you will find the Windows 10 Client ISOs for 16232:
If you are testing other versions of Windows 10 Redstone 3 then you need to visit https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewadvanced to find your specific download for 16232:
The ISO for Build 16232 will let you perform a clean install of Windows 10 Redstone 3 on any of your test devices.
Speaking of testing devices, this week the Windows Insider team is also going to kick off their final Bug Bash for the Fall Creators Update before its release later this year.
We’re really excited to do our 2nd (and final) Bug Bash for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update! The Bug Bash will start at 12am (Pacific Time) on Friday July 14th and will run a full week ending at 11:59 pm (Pacific Time) on Sunday July 23rd. As usual, we will be publishing new quests and will be doing some Mixer webcasts.
Bug bashes are a great way to focus on specific scenarios to test various aspects of the OS where the Windows team is looking for feedback and other usage data.
Also, keep your eye on Dona Sarkar's Twitter account over the next couple of days as we are expecting to see a new build released just in time for this Bug Bash.
