Another week, another build from the Insider team for Fast ring Insiders. Some fixes, some updates, some new features. Also, tomorrow May 18th, there are a couple Beam webcasts. Be sure to join in and have a good time!
Also, a good idea to check the known issues before updating just in case it affects something that you use daily.
