In addition to Sets, build 17618 updates Action Center notifications to appear with a fade in animation when you open it, and the notification to fix blurry apps now appears on Action Center once the toast has timed out and dismissed.

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17618 at the Windows Blog. In case you missed it, you can read all the changes for Windows 10 build 17604 in this article

Although there are no ISO files for Windows 10 build 17618, the update is available immediately through the Fast ring with the Skip Ahead option for PCs. This preview build will download and install automatically on your device, but you can always force the update from Settings > Update & security > Windows Update and clicking the Check for updates button.

Yesterday, a Twitter user who goes by the name WalkingCat asked his followers to run the PowerShell command "Get-VMHostSupportedVersion" on build 17618, which the latest skip ahead version available to Insiders. Someone responded with a picture that clearly shows the next update is being named Spring Creators Update with a build number of 1803 and a version number of 8.3.

To explain how this works, it is important to understand the various builds that are available to Insiders. The next version of Windows 10 is codenamed RS4, or Redstone 4, and the version after that is RS5, or Redstone 5. For most insiders, they are previewing the builds associated with RS4, which the next update to to be released this Spring and what this article is about.

Now, the PoweShell command Get-VMHostSupportedVersion lists all the Hyper-V virtual machine configuration versions that are supported on a particular host. This list will contain the name of the previous Windows 10 version. Since the RS5 build 17618 comes out after the RS4 build, when you run this command on it will display the names of the previous Windows 10 versions. This includes the RS4 build that will be released before it.

After a preview build for the Fast Ring Insiders, Microsoft has started to push a new Build from the Redstone 5 branch. The company's latest Windows 10 preview build for Skip Ahead insiders brings the addition of Sets that were first tested in the Redstone 4. If you are in the Skip Ahead branch of the Insider community, you can now get Windows 10 preview build 17618 with several fixes and improvements. 350c69d7ab
