Windows 10 Spring Creators Update postponed

Microsoft’s Redstone 4 Windows 10 update was primed for an official release last week. The company targeted April 10th as an internal goal to launch the update, however, a concluding “clocking bug” postponed the release. In an uncommon modification, Microsoft has now issued a new development as a replacement for fixing the bug with a cumulative update through Windows Update.

“In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example,” explained Dona Sakar of Microsoft. “Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we decided to create a new build with the fixes included.” The software company has not revealed the exact reason for the blocking bug, or why it was discovered in the final moments of pre-launch.

The new build is available to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring and will be made available to Slow Ring and Release Preview in the coming quarter. A source familiar with Microsoft’s plan disclosed to The Verge that this version 17134 build has now been marked as the final version of the next major Windows 10 update.

Although the company has used the Spring Creators Update naming approach numerous times, Microsoft remains without an official name for the coming update.
