Starting today-Windows Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead will now start receiving new builds for RS5 which is our next Windows 10 release.

Windows 10's latest version would be arriving on machines in the coming month.

So what are the main changes in these fresh builds?

National Weather Service issues Dense Fog Advisory
Some of the lowest viability could occur along the Interstate 80 corridor in Lake and Porter counties, the weather service said. Fog is supposed to be around for most if not the entire morning making this morning's commute a nightmare.

Essentially, what's happening here is that we've reached the point where the next Windows 10 update (Redstone 4) is nearly due, so therefore close to finalized, and thus Microsoft has begun work on Redstone 5 testing, releasing an initial build to Insiders who've previously chosen the "skip ahead" ring. Skip Ahead users will receive a different branch of updates which will focus on the cutting edge, not created to represent a stable update. We've reached out to Microsoft and Ms. Sarkar to confirm that this is the case, and will update this story if and when we get a response.

Insiders can opt in to test preview versions of the following apps: Feedback Hub, Microsoft Photos, Microsoft Sticky Notes, Microsoft Tips, Paint 3D, Windows Alarms & Clock, Windows Calculator, Windows Camera, Windows Mixed Reality Viewer and Windows Voice Recorder. Now, going forward, any Windows Insider testing the OS, no matter what ring they're on, can try out the latest app updates. It should be more automated than Skip Ahead is though, as it will automatically allow new enrollments as other users leave the Preview Program. There is a new Settings page for File System Access that you can access by going to Settings Privacy to turn file system access on or off globally or select which apps should use file system access. You'll also be able to change some of the finer points of Ultimate Performance mode, such as when the display turns off and when the PC goes to sleep, along with advanced power settings for certain pieces of hardware.

The Redstone 4 update, build 17101, is being released to Windows Insiders in the Fast release ring and the Redstone 5 update, build 17604, to those in the Skip Ahead ring. There is also a new power scheme called Ultimate Performance.
