Windows Insider Preview Build 20277 (FE_RELEASE) to the Dev Channel:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20277 | Windows Insider Blog.

Important
Quote
"Starting today, we are giving Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel the option to receive builds from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. These builds will be offered as an optional update through the “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders will have to go and choose to install the currently offered RS_PRERELEASE build. Insiders can choose to install Build 21277. Once they do, they will continue to receive RS_PRERELEASE builds going forward.

Insiders who choose to stay put will continue to automatically get builds from the FE_RELEASE until we move all Insiders in the Dev Channel to receiving RS_PRERELEASE builds sometime after the holidays. We still need Insiders running FE_RELEASE builds and giving us feedback on these builds so its ok if you choose to stay on these builds.

Be sure to check the list of known issues below. The list of fixes and known issues between FE_RELEASE builds and RS_PRERELEASE builds will NOT be the same."

Fixes:
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the WinRE volume label being lost after multiple upgrades.
  •   We fixed an issue that could result in apps failing to update with error code 0x80073D02.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20279 (FE_RELEASE) Released to Dev Channel:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20279 | Windows Insider Blog.

Note from the blog post: 

Quote
This build is largely the same as Build 20277, but we wanted to test our ability to quickly follow-up a flight with another flight.

Windows Insiders who updated to Build 21277 (RS_PRERELEASE) last week will not be offered this build as they are on a newer build. We are working on getting a new build out to those Insiders soon. We expect to move all Insiders in the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from RS_PRERELEASE sometime after the holidays.

The fixes from Build 20277:
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the WinRE volume label being lost after multiple upgrades.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in apps failing to update with error code 0x80073D02.
