Windows 10 Spring Creators Update codenamed Redstone 4 was
originally projected to begin rolling out on April 10, but
Microsoft reportedly delayed the release due to a potential
blocking bug. While the Microsoft remained tight-lipped at
first, the software giant has today in a blog post officially
confirmed that the company discovered a critical bug and as a
result, Microsoft decided to hold the update.
The issues in the RTM build 17133 increased the likelihood of
Blue Screen of Death errors (BSOD) on some systems, Microsoft
explained in a blog post. Microsoft shipped build 17134
today for the Insiders, and after a brief testing, this build
could be released to the general public.
“As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered
some reliability issues we wanted to fix. In certain cases,
these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage
of (BSOD) on PCs for example. Instead of creating a Cumulative
Update package to service these issues, we decided to create a
new build with the fixes included,” Microsoft details the
blocking bug that it discovered recently.
Windows 10 Build 17134 is now available and it could be the new
RTM candidate, this update also includes the changes from the
Windows 10 KB4100375 released for the previous RTM candidate.
Microsoft says that this release includes no new features, but
you can expect fixes and general reliability for the operating
It should take a few more days until the Windows 10 version
1803 becomes available for everyone. Microsoft on the basis of
the feedback will decide the faith of Build 17134, and after a
brief testing, the build will be published to the Release
Preview Ring before going out to the public.
It doesn’t really make sense to install a new version of
Windows 10 if Microsoft itself hasn’t started the rollout. The
best choice for the production devices would be to wait for one
week, the update could be released next week as Microsoft wants
to meet its original release schedule.
The rollout of the still called Windows 10 Spring Creators
Update will take place in stages, so not all PC will receive on
day one. The company prefers this approach over the traditional
method as the rollout in stages could help Microsoft prevent
widespread of certain bugs. It is, however, worth noting that
the rollout will be completed in approximately three months.
