Microsoft lets cautious users try more of Windows 10's leading edge

Microsoft pushed out a fresh update to the preview version of Windows 10 Mobile to testers this week which comprises mostly bug fixes, while at the same time adding a new Release Preview Ring aimed at testers who want to see updates before they hit general availability, but with minimal risk to stability.

Microsoft seems to have only started working on the page, because no update has yet been mentioned or detailed on it. Microsoft has not officially launched Windows 10 Mobile, as odd as that may be, even though the OS is shipping on smartphones like Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950.

Improvements to the device reset experience when BitLocker\Device Encryption is enabled by enterprise policy or by the user.

"The Release Preview ring will focus on Insiders that want to stay on the Current Branch (currently builds based off of 10586), but continue to receive early access to updates, application updates, and driver updates", Microsoft explains in a new announcement on its Windows Experience Blog. However, updates are less frequent in the Slow Ring.

Available for desktop and mobile builds, the Release Preview rounds out the Fast and Slow tracks that have made up the Windows 10 Insider program.

If you are a member of the fast ring, you now have the chance to get the new OS on your phone, but be warned that since it is still in beta, bugs might come your way. Due to the more complete nature of this Insider ring, those that are part of it will also be able to test out new driver updates and app updates (as per WinBeta), which might make it more attractive than the other two rings for those still sitting on the Insider fence.

We don't have a Samsung Ativ SE on hand so can not verify if Microsoft is also pushing out Windows 10 build 10586.107 to other ATIV SEs via Windows Insider's production ring or just ones with Windows 10 already installed. Those in the Fast Ring are the ones to have early access to all the latest patches though they are often buggy and carry more risks.

Then, it's the previous rumor that Microsoft would release Windows 10 Mobile to Windows Phone devices in mid-February.
