KB3206309 bumps the build number to 14986.1001, Microsoft titled the update “Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version Next for x64-based Systems (14986) (KB3206309)”, but the list of changes isn’t yet available.

However, the description pointed out by Windows Update indicates that KB3206309 is simply a security update, and it doesn’t include any additional features or further enhancements.
