For every preview release, we will provide a focus area that we would like you to take a look at and provide us with feedback on. We encourage you to try out any functionality in the release and we welcome your feedback.
Validation for every preview: There are two major areas that we would like you to try out in each preview release and report back any issues:
In-place OS Upgrade (from Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016)
Application compatibility – please let us know if any server roles or applications stops working or fails to function as it used to
Another build from the Insider team for Fast ring Insiders. This time, they are preparing for the release of the Fall Creators Update, version 1709.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for Mobile
This build includes all the improvements from KB4038788.
In preparation for the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the product version number has been updated to 1709 just like PC.
We fixed an issue where, on powering the screen off/on, high demand for CPU could cause several apps to crash. Background processing of photos is an example of high CPU demand. In a photo shoot session, you may have seen the Camera app crash.
We fixed an issue with the Messaging app where conversation text was displayed incorrectly. Thanks to our Insiders that quickly highlighted this issue.
A new build for Windows Fast Ring insiders – build 17127 has been released. Again, another build with a few improvements, but nothing mind blowing being added as ‘new’. No new known issues as we get closer to the final release of this version.

We fixed an issue that could result in Microsoft Edge crashing when turning off certain extensions.
We fixed an issue where Narrator would crash when using scan mode to read dialogs in Microsoft Edge.
