Microsoft releases new Windows 10 Spring Creators Update RTM candidate, Build 17134

Due to a last-minute bug, Microsoft eventually chose to hold back the release of the new Windows 10 update.

It is not news that the release of the Spring Creators Update for Windows 10 has been delayed, and in a blog post today Microsoft's Dona Sarkar detailed the issue.

Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build 17133 was widely thought to be the RTM for the forthcoming Spring Creators Update after it rolled out to Insiders on the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings in quick succession. Microsoft initially planned to roll out the feature update on April 10, but the company chose to delay the release until the bug is fixed. After a brief testing, Build 17134 "the RTM candidate" will be shipped to all rings of the Windows Insider program. This build has no new features and includes the fixes from KB4100375 as well as some fixes for general reliability of the OS. "This just reinforces that Windows Insiders are critical to helping us find and fix issues before releasing feature updates to all our customers so thank you", Microsoft's Dona Sarkar said in a blog post, explaining all the drama surrounding the Redstone 4 delay. In the blog post, Microsoft says that build 17133 was rendering BSOD on some systems, and as that is something the users can not deal with, the update was delayed.

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17134 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
