Windows 10 build 10586 is now rolling out to Insiders who opted for the Fast ring of updates. The new build does not include new features, but it includes a number of general improvements and bug fixes that bring the operating system close to completion, as you know the company soon plans to release the Windows 10 Fall Update to everyone.

According to Microsoft, Windows 10 build 10586 is a very well done build and it’s good enough for anyone to use as their primary operating system. However, because the preview was made available through the Fast ring of updates, it also means more bugs and fewer workarounds. As such, the software maker is publishing a list with all the known issue found in this build that users should consider before installing.

The good news is that today’s release only includes two known issues that aren’t very significant.
