Microsoft releases a new Windows 11 build, but this time it has been limited to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. That’s because Microsoft is now moving the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from the active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE) and thus it will no longer match the Windows 11 experience that's going to release on October 5th.

 

The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449 comes with a change in the SMB compression behavior. It also adds a long list of other changes, improvements and bug fixes. If you are on the Dev Channel, upgrade to this build now.
