Frowny face! If you were on the lookout for a new Windows 10 21H2 preview build to go live on Wednesday, then chances are that your disappointment was immeasurable and you day was ruined.
That’s because the company will not launch a new build this week.
The software titan has confirmed that no new build went live in the Dev channel, as the current candidate wasn’t ready to ship. In other words, Insiders need to wait one more week to get their hands on a new test version.
Redmond has confirmed that it’d return to its typical release calendar next week, so no worries there.
Hey #WindowsInsiders – This week's Dev Channel build candidate wasn't ready to take off, so we're cancelling the flight for this week. We'll be back at it next week. ^AL pic.twitter.com/1elkCWIAmB

Windows Insiders in the Dev channel are treated with Windows 10 21H2 builds, which enable them to preview the upcoming feature update that is due out in the fall.
The immediate Windows 10 feature update, however, is the 21H1 release due shortly, in the spring of this year. But as compared to 21H2 release, this next update will be just a small set of improvements delivered to keep the OS refreshed.
Very much like a monthly quality update, with barely a new addition.
But the good thing is that this release is well on track. Going by the company’s typical release calendar, this new Windows 10 feature update is expected to RTM any day now, with the final build to be shipped to Insiders first, as always.
Production launch should be in late April or May.
