Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Insider Preview Build

Following the release of Windows 10 Anniversary Update earlier last week, Microsoft has officially launched a brand new build of Windows 10, Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14901, to Windows Insiders for download and testing.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14901 brings some new features as well as other enhancements such as:

  • Some structural improvements to OneCore which is the shared “heart” of Windows across PC, tablet, phone, IoT, Hololens and Xbox
  • New notifications within File Explorer that are designed to help customers with quick, easy information about things they can do or new features they can try to have a better experience with Windows 10
However, this build does include some issues like:
  • Support for kernel debugging over 1394 has been removed, but will be available in an upcoming kit release. A work-around will be posted to the Debugging Tools for Windows Blog shortly
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes when you try to launch it
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14901 is now rolling out through Windows Update as part of the company's Fast Ring builds program for registered Windows Insiders.
