New preview build for Windows 10 Mobile on its wayMicrosoft

Many of you have been eagerly waiting for the next Windows 10 Mobile preview build, as it's been almost a month since Microsoft released build 10512 for Windows Insiders on Fast ring. Gabriel Aul, vice-president, WDG Engineering System team at Microsoft, shares some information on how far the development has reached.

While build 10512, featuring overall stability and performance improvements, has received great feedback from Insiders, the developer team is currently fixing the known issues found in it. So far, issues related to the Quiet Hours and Do Not Disturb features have been fixed. Besides, the mobile hotspot functionality, and the pinch and zoom gesture feature in Maps work fine. Improvements have been made to fix the delay in showing date and time on the lock screen.

The new build incorporating the above fixes is making its way through Microsoft's internal rings, but a few issues still exist. So, don't expect the new build until these issues are resolved. However, Aul says fixes for these issues that were blocking the new build from flighting are ready, and it is currently going through the internal rings.

Following this, Aul announced through a tweet post that the next build with Store Fix is delayed until early next week as an issue was discovered in build 10536 that was scheduled for a 11 September release.

Quite surprisingly, Michael Boumann, who runs the Twitter handle hxkclan and a member of the Windows Insiders Program claims to have downloaded a new build 10536, which seems faster and snappier that the previous releases. Additionally, there is a new zStorage app on the build and the mobile hotspot works fine. Boumann has also provided a few screenshots for the build and says that the lock screen delay is no longer present on his Lumia 930.
