We are, slowly but surely, moving towards the release of Windows 11 Version 22H2, also known as Sun Valley 2, and this is very evident to Windows Insiders. We very recently saw the release of Windows 11 Preview Build 22567 to Insiders and then there was the KB5012427 update for testing the servicing pipeline.
Now Microsoft has released a second Cumulative Update Build of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders signed up for the Dev Channel. The KB5012432 update takes Windows 11 up to build 22567.200, but this time Microsoft is not making it available to everyone — not even all Insiders.
In a second update to the original blog post announcing the release of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567, Microsoft revealed the latest update. Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc from the company write:
We are starting to roll out Cumulative Update Build 22567.200 (KB5012432). This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline for builds in the Dev Channel.
There is an interesting additional note to this update:
NOTE: Windows Insiders on Home edition will not be able to install the Build 22567.100 and Build 22567.200 updates.
It is not clear why Home users are being cut out of the loop for this test of the servicing pipeline, but it does seem as though Microsoft is gearing up for a wider rollout. The sad thing about the KB5012432 update is that there are no changes that users will notice, as this is really an update that is for Microsoft’s benefit.
