Most Windows Insiders are used to Microsoft releasing a new build of Windows 10 every week. The company releases a new build of Windows 10 for PCs and Mobile almost every week, but it sometimes doesn’t manage to release a new build every once in a while. Well, that’s also the case for this week: due to a blocking bug in the build that was supposed to be released to Insiders, Microsoft won’t be releasing a new build to Windows Insiders this week. Microsoft obviously didn’t disclose what the blocking bug actually was, but it’s probably something serious.
#WindowsInsiders: we found a blocking bug in our internal testing and won't be flighting a Fast Ring build this week. Have a great week.

Microsoft’s Jason Howard confirmed earlier this evening that the blocking bug had a “big impact” during internal testing. Howard later clarified that the bug “would break” some of the settings, dialogs, and even the printing functionalities in Windows 10:
It's not a security bug so we can talk about it. This particular bug would break some dialog menus, printing, some of settings. Not fun.
