Yesterday, a new report claimed the upcoming Windows Update is being codenamed as “Redstone”. Since then, some more details was revealed by Microsoft enthusiast Mary Jo Foley and Brad Sams. According to ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, Redstone will be released to Windows 10 users as a regular update in 2016. Windows Redstone isn’t a new version of Windows, such as Windows 11 – instead, it’ll be a regular update that packs features that didn’t make it to the Windows 10 RTM. This also means that the Windows Insiders program will stay alive, and Insiders will be able to test Redstone a bit early than the public.
Interestingly enough, according to the reports, Windows Redstone will be released in two waves – the first wave will be released in June 2016 and the second wave will be released in October 2016. It’s also worth mentioning that Windows Insiders will be able to these two waves of Windows Redstone before the RTM.
Unfortunately though, there isn’t much info on Windows Redstone and it isn’t yet clear what new features it will pack as Windows 10 hasn’t yet hit RTM. However, we expect Microsoft to reveal more info on Windows 10 RTM, as well as Windows Redstone at its upcoming events, such as Build 2015 and Ignite.
