Windows 10 Updates Delayed By Blue Screen Of Death
The Blue Screen of Death has delayed updates for Microsoft’s Windows 10. Microsoft was planning to release a major update this April. The update is codenamed Redstone 4. But the company has since delayed the update.
What Caused The Delay
Windows Insider head Dona Sarkar noted on the windows Insider Blog that “in certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) on PCs, for example.” She did not note exactly what caused this bug.
The company is releasing an entirely new build with fixes built in instead of releasing Redstone 4 as is. Microsoft hasn’t officially named Redstone 4 yet. But whatever name it ends up being called, it will bring it will bring new features.
When Will the New Build Be Available
The new build will be available to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. It will be available to Slow Ring and Release Preview shortly. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans say that this build (version 17134) has now been marked as the final version of the next major Windows 10 update.
It has been rumored that the release of the Redstone 4 (or whatever it will be called) will be pushed to May.
Windows 10 Update Features
The next major Windows 10 update will include Timeline, HDR support, dictation, and even more fluent design changes. Microsoft is now testing its new upgrade. It will be called Redstone 5. Heavily featured on this update will be tabbed apps. More information about this new update is expected to be heard on Microsoft’s Build developer conference in May.
The delay has caused problems to Microsoft. But it gave them the opportunity to upgrade Redstone 4 and add features to prevent future delays from happening. The public is assured that Microsoft is doing its best to develop new products and upgrade existing ones for their clients’ satisfaction.
So on its launch, which is said to be in May, we can expect a better Redstone 4 (or whatever name Microsoft decides to call it).
