Windows 10 V1909 in Release Preview Ring

[German]Just a brief information: Microsoft has released the Windows 10 version 1909 as a build for Windows insiders testing in the Release Preview Ring. Here are a few details I know so far.

I had speculated a few days ago that the new Windows 10 version 1909 could be released on October 3, 2019 (see Windows 10 V1909 ready, release on October 3, 2019?). As we know now, this hasn’t happened. Instead, a new V2 of Windows 10 version 1903 has been added to Microsoft’s Techbench servers (the colleagues from deskmodder.de have discussed this in the German blog post Win10 1903 V2 ISO steht nun zum Download bereit).

Now it looks as if Microsoft could release the new Windows 10 version 1909 build for ‘daring’ users next week. On Friday, Microsoft released the new Windows 10 Version 1909 as a build for Windows insiders testing in the Release Preview Ring.

Users have noticed this and they have reported it in tweets as shown below. The Slow Ring was obviously skipped. Microsoft employee Brandon LeBlanc confirmed that.

Microsoft has written an addendum to the Windows Blog that confirms this. The addendum says:

UPDATE 10/3: Today, we have released KB4524147 which applies to both 19H1 and 19H2. For Windows Insiders in Release Preview on 19H2, this will update them to Build 18363.388.

Update KB4524147 has been released for Windows 10 Version 1903, which should fix the printer problems (see my blog posts Windows Updates fixes printer bug (Oct. 3, 2019) and Windows/IE: Issues and confusion with updates (10/03/2019)). The update KB4524147 was also released for Windows 10 19H2, which will become version 1909.

The colleagues from German blog deskmodder.de pointed out a few hours ago in the blog post KB4517245 – Feature-Update auf die Windows 10 Version 1909 that this is also the ‘Feature Update’ for Windows 10 Version 1909. In principle, all Windows 10 1903 users already have the code for Windows 10 Version 1903 through the updateKB4524147. However, Microsoft has not yet released the functions. Only a small Enablement Package KB4517245 is required to unlock the features and increases the build from 18362 to 18363. Insiders who test in the release preview will probably get this update – if you want to experiment, you can download and install the update from the deskmodder page via the blog post linked above.

KB4517245. Dieses schaltet die Funktionen frei und erhöht die Build von 18362 auf  18363. Insider, die im Release Preview testen, bekommen dieses Update wohl angeboten – wer unbedingt experimentieren will, kann sich das Update über den oben verlinkten Blog-Beitrag von der deskmodder-Seite herunterladen und installieren.
