Microsoft is scheduled to release the next big update for Windows 10, a.k.a the Creators update in April, which will be the second release on the Redstone branch. The Redstone 1 (Anniversary update) rolled out in August last year. But before that happens, another release from the Redstone branch is already in works, to be released later this year.

Redstone 3

The Redstone 3 build is expected to be rolled out in the fourth quarter of 2017, but Microsoft hasn’t named it yet. However, Buildfeed, a site which tracks all of the Insider builds, has reported about the first Redstone 3 release build 15141.

The new Redstone 3 build comes from the rs_prerelease branch, whereas the Redstone 2 builds hails from the rs2_release branch.

Clearly, there’s nothing much to get excited right now, but it marks a new chapter in the progression of Windows 10. We can expect Microsoft to test the Redstone 3 release with Windows Insiders only after the Creators update goes official.

Even though there isn’t much info on the feature list, Microsoft will mostly ship the My People in the next big update. The said feature was originally intended for Creators update but failed to make it in time. Also, Project Neon, a new design language for the OS and UWP apps, is rumored to be released alongside the Redstone 3 release.

We shall have more information on the subject at the Microsoft’s annual Build 2017 developer conference scheduled in May. Do let us know which feature you would like to see in the next big update to Windows 10 in the comments section below.
