Official announcement:

Improvements and fixes
*) Read EPUB books in Microsoft Edge;
*) Bringing 3D to Everyone via the Paint 3D Preview app;
*) PowerShell in the Shell;
*) Improved Typing Experience with Japanese and Chinese Input Method Editors (IMEs);
*) Get Office (Beta) (updated via store, in the image is the old version);
*) Removed the ''Snooze'' action in Microsoft Edge;
*) Improved reliability when using the protractor and inking in Sketchpad;
*) Improved some translations;
*) Updated some of the desktop wizards (including “map a network drive” and “extract from zip”) to now be proportionally sized when moved across monitors;
*) Enabled OAuth support for Yahoo Mail Accounts;
*) Fixed an issue where Magnifier’s keyboard shortcuts sometimes wouldn't work on the Lock screen;
*) Fixed an issue that could result in sometimes not being able to completely remove files in the Windows.old folder using Disk Cleanup;
*) Fixed an issue where trying to shut down the PC while certain Device Manager dialog boxes were open would result in the PC being stuck at the “Restarting…” screen;
*) Fixed an issue where, as closing multiple tabs with middle click in Microsoft Edge, the width of the tabs might change, resulting in potentially unexpectedly closing the wrong tab;
*) Fixed an issue where the copy link option when right-clicking a hyperlink in Microsoft Edge didn't work;
*) Fixed an issue where, if you changed the size of the Microsoft Edge window, and then closed the app by closing the final tab, the next time Microsoft Edge is launched it would once again be the default size, rather than retaining the preferred window size;
*) Fixed an issue where pinned tabs in Microsoft Edge were not being restored;
*) Fixed an issue where, if you already hand a notification expanded in the Action Center, clicking the chevron to expand a second notification would result in it expanding then immediately closing;
*) Fixed an issue where preferred Start menu width might not be preserved after rebooting.

Known issues
*) Navigating to Settings > System > Battery will crash the Settings app;
*) Using keyboard monitor hotkeys to adjust brightness won’t work as expected. Desired brightness change could be done via the Action Center or by going to Settings > System > Display;
*) Apps such as Store, Photos, and People may launch on their own after your PC has been inactive for a period of time. To stop these apps from launching on their own, un-maximize the app before closing it;
*) Double-clicking on an Excel document to open it from File Explorer will crash Microsoft Excel. The workaround is to open the document from within Excel;
*) Microsoft Studios games like Microsoft Sudoku, Jigsaw, Minesweeper, Taptiles, and Treasure Hunt may freeze at the splash screen on launch.
*) Windows Holographic Shell is included but non-functional, it will come in a later build.


This is a fast ring build, which updates via Windows Update from an earlier build.
Or you can convert the .ESD to .ISO and use it as a fresh install.

Classic Paint
Once you have opened the new Paint 3D App, it replaces all options in the shell when starting paint with the newer 3D paint.
You can uninstall the new Paint 3D App or if you want to keep it installed do the following:

*) Open regedit.exe.
*) Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint.
*) Create a new key called: Settings.
*) In that new key create a DWORD 32-bit value called DisableModernPaintBootstrap and set the value to 1.

Enable the new Share UI
This build includes a new Share UI shown off in the Windows 10 previously, it does not completely function.
You can enable it by following these steps:

*) Open regedit.exe.
*) Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SharePlatform.
*) Create a new DWORD 32-bit value called EnableNewShareFlow and set it to 1.
