After months of waiting, Microsoft has finally released a new version of Windows 10 Insider Preview for slow ringing. The build number is 18342.8.
19H1 is the code name of the next feature update for Windows 10 and the version number will be 1903. As this version number indicates, we should see a RTM version generated in March. far from being in the process of being finalized.
Windows 10 19H1 is in testing since last July, while it appeared in the "Skip Ahead" ring. He was promoted to the "Fast" ring in October. One of the reasons that there has been no Slow Ring release since all this time is that some games were at the origin of a GSOD and that Microsoft was waiting for the fix. from a third party developer. The fix still has not arrived because those who play the games – which Microsoft has not mentioned the names – will be prevented from updating this version. In addition, PCs using the ZH-CN language will not obtain it for a similar reason.
The good news is that it is available to all others. When the 18342 version was originally released on the Fast ring, a problem froze it from some Intel chipsets. The build has been processed, so this problem no longer applies.
As this is the first 19H1 model built in the Slow ring and as we approach the end of the development cycle, Slider Ring Insiders is about to have many features, such as the new light theme that offers a white taskbar. You can also run Win32 applications in Windows Mixed Reality and you will find that the search and Cortana have been split. Obviously, there is a lot more. You can find all the features in the notes of the versions you missed:
