A week ago, Microsoft delayed the rollout of the Windows 10 "Spring Creators Update" due to a serious issue. Apparently, the software giant discovered a reliability issue that could result in a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). Rather than fixing the bug via a cumulative update via Windows Update, Microsoft decided to issue a new build. Version 17134 is reportedly the final version of the next major Windows 10 update and it should be released soon.
“In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example,” says Microsoft’s Dona Sakar. “Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we decided to create a new build with the fixes included.” Microsoft has not revealed the exact reason for the blocking bug, or why it was discovered at the last moment.
The Verge also notes that the update will be known as Windows 10 April 2018 Update and not Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, as was previously communicated.
