Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19018 (20H1), Skip Ahead Ring terminated, new Insider ISO

[German]Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19018 (from the development branch 20H1) for Windows Insider in the Fast Ring on November 6, 2019. There are some new features and fixes and the Skip Ahead ring is ‘slaughtered’. There is also a new ISO file of Preview Build 19013.


The development branch 20H1 will end as a Windows 10 build expected in early 2020.

The Skip Ahead ring is terminated

Probably the most important point is that Microsoft has finished the Skip Ahead ring. Microsoft wrote :

Starting today, Windows Insiders who have opted into Skip Ahead are being migrated back into the Fast ring. This means that Skip Ahead will no longer be reflected under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program. Going forward, we will not be offering Skip Ahead as an option for Insiders to sign-up for. Our goal is to provide everyone in the Fast ring the freshest builds at the same time.
