Windows 10 build 17134 Slow ring

Windows 10 version 1803 (build 17134) releases in the Slow ring, Release Preview ring

Windows 10 build 17134 heads to the Slow ring, and version 1803 gets one step closer to final release.

After releasing Windows 10 build 17134 to the Fast ring addressing the blocking bug that cause Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) at a higher rate than usual, Microsoft is now making available the latest preview in the Slow ring.

Windows 10 build 17134 in the Slow ring doesn’t introduce new features, but it signals that the preview already passed a number of tests to be considered a final candidate.

Microsoft isn’t saying if  this flight will roll out in waves, which means that it should be available for anyone enrolled in the Slow ring.

If everything works as expected, we may soon see build 17134 in the Release Preview ring, and once the company can ensure that is stable enough, then it’ll rollout as Windows 10 version 1803 to everyone in the coming days.

You can check the announcement for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17134 at the Windows Blog. In case you missed it, you can read all the changes for Windows 10 build 17133 in this article.
