Windows Insider program lead Dona Sarkar updated the Windows blog yesterday afternoon to announce the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14366 and Mobile build 14364. This update isn't as exciting as some of the past updates since it focuses primarily on performance and stability updates, but improvements in those areas are always welcome.
Major fixes in this update include a solved crash in the privacy settings dialog, the squashing of buggy behavior with multi-monitor configurations, and an end to high CPU usage in the Edge browser under certain circumstances. Devices with multiple batteries should now present the correct battery life statistics, and active VPN connections should no longer prevent PCs from sleeping. Aside from those things, the laundry list of fixes includes a lot of general spit and polish for the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary update.
Keen readers will note that Windows Insider program manager Gabe Aul is no longer running the show with this update, as well. Aul said his goodbyes to the program a couple weeks ago in a post on the Windows Experience blog. It turns out that the Windows Insider program was a side job for Aul, and as time went on, it was beginning to interfere with his primary position at Microsoft, so he tapped Sarkar to take over the program.
