Last week was supposed to see the release of Windows 10 1803, the next feature update, but as you may have noticed, it has not arrived yet. The reason is users on Microsoft Fast Ring of Windows Insiders were suffering BSODs, and obviously you do not want to launch an update that will cause crashes. Now it appears the Redstone 4 update, as it is codenamed, may be delayed even longer because users on the 17134 preview build have been experiencing issues with Settings. Apparently going in and trying to change your default applications will cause the Settings app to crash, and as the ability to change default applications is something many of us enjoy, Microsoft does not want it to go live. The question is if this can be fixed with a hotfix that would be installed at the same time as the new build, of if it will require a completely new build, which will then need fresh round of testing.

I'm hoping they release a cumulative patch or something and not a new build. I just installed 17134.1 on four machines couple of days ago.
