More Windows 10 tidbits here!!

Microsoft has listened to those asking for ISO images for new release Builds and will provide it with the release of updates to those insiders with “Slow ring” settings.

So we’re going to release the ISOs at the same time as we publish to the Slow ring. That means if you want to be FIRST and FASTEST to get the build, you’ll need to use our Preview Builds mechanisms (either automatic or Check Now in PC Settings to download.) If you must have an ISO you’ll have to be a bit more patient. I hope that you’ll consider that a fair tradeoff.

A new Insider Hub app is included win the latest Windows 10 Build 9879.

The Insider Hub is your one-stop-shop for all the latest news and announcements regarding the Windows Insider Program. There will be times when we will need to communicate something to Windows Insiders that may not necessitate doing a blog post or forum post which we’ll push out to the Windows Insider Hub. You’ll want to check it for news, but it will also notify you if there’s something interesting to share. We’ll also post quests for you to try out new features and then send us feedback (via the Windows Feedback app). The Insider Hub isn’t pinned to your Start menu/Start screen so you’ll need to find it (and pin it!). Be sure to open it at least once so you will receive notifications from the app on important news and announcements.

Microsoft has also update the Windows Feedback app.

  • You can now sort feedback entries based on trending topics, number of Me Too, and most recent.
  • When you’re finished adding feedback, the Windows Feedback app will take you back to the category you were already in, not the list.
  • There was an issue when you tried searching for existing feedback it would give you an error and no filter anything at all – we’ve fixed this so you can easily find submitted feedback and vote on them.
  • We’ve made the screenshot button easier to find!

Last and not so welcome news is about the latest Build 9879  being the last build for year 2014 with a promise of something early in 2015.

This will be the last new build of the year for Windows Insiders, as we’ll be using the time over the holidays to continue making refinements both to the product and to our engineering system that we’re using to bring it to you. Keep sending us feedback, and we’ll keep working to build Windows 10 into something that you’ll love. We’ll have something new to share with you early in 2015, and don’t forget to check out Insider Hub to stay in touch.
