Fall Creators Update will be version 1709

    Microsoft have announced that the Windows 10 version number for the upcoming Fall Creators Update will be 1709.

The previous major release of Windows 10, the original Creators Update, was version 1703, so the jump to 1709 might not seem like much of an increase, and compared to previous releases it isn't; but what it is is a bug-fixed and tweaked version of the original Creators Update that was, frankly, half baked when launched earlier this year.

It should be noted that although 1709 is the "version number", it isn't the build number of the "gold" image for the Fall Creators Update. Microsoft tell us that they haven't reached that stage yet, although the current Insiders Build (16288) is the first one to not show an "Evaluation build" watermark when installed.

    • Yesterday Microsoft released another build to the Windows insider fast ring. Read on to see what's new in build 17083. This is a bit of an odd build in that it seems at first sight that there's not a whole bunch that's new, but that's not really the case; this build includes lots of smaller, but equally important changes and improvements. Having said that, the biggest change in this build is related to fonts. As of 17083, fonts can now be bought, installed and managed from the Microsoft Store. It may not sound like much of a change, but actually it will make font management a hell of a lot easier for yon average user. Here's what Microsoft says about the font changes: The full release notes are here.

    • A new year and a new build ... after almost a month of inactivity, Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 insider preview build, 17074. New in this build is a new take on localisation - rather than downloading language packs "as part of Windows", you now get them from the Microsoft Store. Why the change? Who knows, but apparently it's for the better.

      In addition, there's a whole skew of updates for Edge, pushing even more epub and ebook features into the browser.

      As ever, click here for the full release notes.

    • After a break of a few weeks, Microsoft have finally released a new build of Windows 10. Read on to find out what's new in build 17063. The big change in this build is Timeline - this is a brand new major feature that's designed to allow you to more easily see what you were doing at some point in the past. i.e. a timeline on your PC activity. As Microsoft put it: In addition to this, there's the usual raft of fixes and improvements to Edge, with Cortana getting a bit of love as well. The full release notes are here
