Windows 11 Maintenance Build 22616.100 (KB5014650) released to developers and beta insiders

Today, Microsoft released a service update with the new Windows 11 Build 22616.100 (KB5014650) to Dev and Beta Channel Insiders. The new build brings nothing new as it is a cumulative update with which the company is known to test its maintenance pipelines. Microsoft releases service updates frequently as Dev Channel builds contain new and upcoming features.

The full announcement says:

We are starting to roll out cumulative update build 22616.100 (KB5014650). This update contains nothing new and is intended to test our build servicing pipeline in the development and beta channels.

Therefore, all bug fixes and improvements that were announced in the previously released Build 22616 for the Dev Channel as well as the Beta Channel have been moved to it. This build contains many new features as we move into the next phase of Windows 11 in preparation for version 22H2.

Interestingly, while no new changes have been made to this build, maintenance of test builds like these before has been known to break some functionality. For example, Windows 10 Build 21292.1010 caused issues with x64 emulation on ARM PCs.
