Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1511 to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Ring. The company today released build 10586.240 for PCs, and it does not introduce any new features as you may expect. However, the build introduces a number of improvements and a couple of bug fixes which are always nice to see. With the latest update, Windows 10 should be a bit faster and a bit more stable, so if you are in the Release Preview Ring, make sure to download the latest build.

Here is the changelog:

  • Improvements to general application compatibility.
  • Improvements in the upgrade experience, including fixing an issue where some devices would lose data connections or touch input after upgrading to Windows 10.
  • Improved the reliability of reminders.
  • Improved UI for tracking data usage under Settings > Network and wireless > Data usage.
  • Improved the navigation bar experience for some devices.
  • Fixed an issue where some SD card readers were not recognized.
  • Updated Daylight Savings in countries with Daylight Savings changes.

Keep in mind that this isn’t available to the general public just yet — however, if Microsoft’s testing shows that this build is good enough for the public, they will probably release it next Tuesday.
