The Oct. 1 version of Windows 10 was labeled Build 9841.
"Sometimes [updates] will be more frequent and sometimes there will be longer gaps, but they will always be chock full of changes and improvements, as well as some bugs and things that are not quite done," wrote Gabe Aul, of Microsoft's Operating Systems Group on a company blog today.
Aul said that Build 9860 had been handed to his group only a week ago, and repeated earlier warnings by other Microsoft managers that the preview remains incomplete and unpolished.
Although rapid iterations are nothing new to preview or beta software, Microsoft plans to accelerate the delivery of updates -- ones that will include not only security patches and performance fixes, but also new features -- once Windows 10 officially ships in mid-2015.
