    Maybe this is old news, but I just installed the Windows Device Recovery Tool. Been Insider for a while know and running build 10586.
    When I open the recovery tool it tells me that new software are available on the server: The firmware 15236 and OS 9615. As far as I have read the 9615 is part of the Demin update. So if the install this firmware update I guess I'll revert to WP8.1? Is it worth it?

    The reason I looked at the recovery tool in the first place is that I was wondering why I didn't get build 14295.

    Yes.

    You would need to be in the fast ring to get this build.

    You are right. I thought I was on the fast ring, but I was on the slow ring. Now I get.

    Should I upgrade the firmware?

    Backup your data, use WDRT to install the newest firmware, then download Windows Insider and choose Fast Ring. ;-)

    but wasn't there a post on WC or something that mentioned that firmware updates are also going to be brought in in the insider configurations? Am I mistaken to wait for this? Does the newer firmware bring anything new or was it something that was required just for people to get on to the W10M? I would consider the pains of resetting if the newer firmware brought about a) better battery life, b) better image quality, and c) important features that won't arrive unless I have the updated firmware.

    Right now I am on production branch with .164, on firmware 02540.00019.15053.26007 on a 930 CV France.

    I also noticed the new firmware update. I reinstalled WP8.1 and am now unable to go back to Windows 10 Mobile. Any ideas?

    To go back to Win10m build .164 you will need to select the 'Release preview' ring in the Windows Insider app.
