    I am wondering is there a place that list the new features and changes that are in the latest Fast ring build (Redstone Branch). I am talking from the current production build. I know each time a build comes out it lists what is different in that build from the previous build, but if someone were to join the fast ring, and had previously only had the production ring, what would be different?

    One can always checkout the Windows Insider blogs to keep a track of what's new, what's broken, etc. Microsoft will post a detailed release note once Anniversary Update goes GA.

    I tried that, but they go from build to build, so it is difficult to understand what the changes are from the last production build to now. The question I have is, for those not on that insider builds, what new features would they get if Microsoft rolled the fast build to production.

    Also asking a question when you cannot find the answer after searching is your friend too. ;-)
