MICROSOFT HAS given a bit more insight into why we haven't yet seen the long-awaited Spring Update for Windows 10. The reported build is from the RS4 branch, which caters the following Windows 10 update. As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix.

She confirmed what was to be the RTM build had reliability issues, and "in certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example".

Microsoft says that instead of shipping the Springs Creators Update faulty as it was, and then delivering an update later to fix the issues, it chose to hold off on deploying the defective build altogether.

For the time being, there are no bug reports from Insiders, and it seems this build release is indeed more stable and reliable than the previous one. The only said changes come in the form of fixes from last week's Cumulative Update (KB4100375) and few general fixes for the overall OS. As indicated by Microsoft, the bug prompted an expansion in Blue Screen of Deaths and there was some possibility that it might have caused different issues.

Following the glitch, Microsoft is now sending a new preview build (17134) to its trusty Windows Insiders (Fast Ring). It has no new features but simply corrects the problems in Build 17133 - which should have been the version that we saw being released as stable. The new build features all the necessary fixes and improvements to prevent the issues that blocked the initial release in the first place.

In a rather interesting move, the official Instagram app has just updated on Windows 10 devices with several new features just a day or so after it was made unavailable on Windows phones.
