Windows Redstone 4 17133 is out

by on01 April 2018

Feature update version 1803

This might be the last Redstone insider preview before Microsoft officially releases its Redstone 4 spring update of the software, and it is available for X86 and ARM – Snapdragon 835 Windows 10 users on a slow update ring today.

The Preview Build17133 was renamed to Feature update version 1803 which reminds us of an official name for the Fall update aka Featured update 1709 branding. Microsoft confirms that by April 2, everyone in the slow ring should be able to see and install the update.

Another hint that this might be the real deal that can go to RTM (release to manufacturer) and later to official updates for the masses, is the fact that the watermark in the right-hand corner has been removed.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We (Microsoft) fixed an issue resulting in certain devices with BitLocker enabled unexpectedly booting into BitLocker recovery in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to change the display resolution when there were 4 or more monitors connected, due to the confirmation prompt hanging when you selected “Keep changes”.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking suggested search terms when typing in the Microsoft Edge URL bar didn’t do anything.

The next logical step is that people who are Windows insiders on the Release Preview ring are likely to receive this build early next week and the RTM might become available a week after. This matches the timeframe that was confirmed by some of our sources some two weeks ago. The Redstone 4 will be the version that Microsoft wants you to run with the Snapdragon 835 based Windows 10 notebooks for combability and performance. Of course, if you are on Intel/AMD hardware user, you want the latest and greatest, so this might be the one for you as well.

If you want to take one step into the future, Microsoft also announced the Redstone 5 RS5 Windows 10 insider preview build 17634 for skip ahead adventurers. The RS5 is scheduled for a fall update and it is quite some time away.
