Ahead of the Windows 10 Fall Update (Threshold 2) roll out, Microsoft makes Windows 10 build 10486 available through the Slow ring of updates. The software giant originally released the same build on November 5th, and while it’s now available through the Slow ring, it doesn’t include any new changes.

As you know, getting a new build in the Slow ring, it also means that Microsoft makes the ISO files available for download, but Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul has said that it will take a couple more days.

While the company has yet to publicly make the announcement, Windows 10 build 10586 is expected to be the official, Gold, RTM (Release To Manufacturing), GA (General Availability), and it should be arriving this week — either on November 10th (or November 12th).

Overall the new build doesn’t include any visual changes or new features, but it includes a number of bug fixes and refinements that gets the operating system ready for the masses.

According to the company, the build 10586 includes improvements on Microsoft Edge, addresses issues with Surface Pro 3 and Groove Music app, and makes the Store experience more reliable. Plus, small devices, such as the Dell Venue 8 Pro, should not get the blue screen of death while upgrading.

In addition, it’s said that Windows 10 build 10586 enables Intel’s “Speed Shift” feature found in the new Skylake processors, which allows the operating system to delegate the control of voltage and frequency to the processor.

Here are the highlights for Windows 10 (build 10586):
