Microsoft has released another preview build for Windows 10 to the Windows Insiders on the Fast ring, with build version 19559.1000 from rs_prerelease branch. The new build brings no major new feature. Instead, it focuses on quality updates and bug fixes.

Do note that the Windows Insider’s Fast ring is receiving independent test build from Active Development Builds branch of Windows 10, and new features will show up in these builds first. Even though the new features in the Active Development Branch may be slated for a future Windows 10 release, they are no longer matched to a specific Windows 10 release. Instead, Slow ring of Windows Insider will publish upcoming Windows 10 Feature Update (Windows 10 20H1), which is currently at build version 19041.21.

Known issues

To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview been applied.
