Windows 11 version history

Windows 11 is a major release of the Windows NT developed by Microsoft that was released in October 2021. Starting with Windows 10, Microsoft described Windows as an "operating system as a service" that would receive ongoing updates to its features and functionality, augmented with the ability for enterprise environments to receive non-critical updates at a slower pace or use long-term support milestones that will only receive critical updates, such as security patches, over their five-year lifespan of mainstream support.

Channels

Windows Insider Preview builds are delivered to Insiders in four different channels. Insiders in the Dev and Canary Channel receive updates prior to those in the Beta Channel, but might experience more bugs and other issues. Insiders in the Release Preview Channel do not receive updates until the version is almost available to the public, but are comparatively more stable.

Version 24H2 (2024 Update)

The Windows 11 2024 Update (also known as version 24H2) is the third major update to Windows 11. The first preview was released to Insiders who opted in to the Canary and Dev Channels on February 8, 2024.

Dev Channel

On September 2, 2021, Microsoft announced that Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel will receive builds directly from the rs_prerelease branch, which are not matched to a specific Windows 11 release. The first build released under this strategy, build 22449, was made available to Insiders on the same day.

On February 3, 2022, Microsoft changed its plans on how they delivered builds for Windows Insiders, with Dev and Beta Channels being "parallel" active development branches, giving an option to switch from Dev to Beta Channel for a limited time. The Dev Channel builds are meant for upcoming and experimental features that may never release to general availability, whereas the Beta Channel builds are the "feature complete" builds that will make its way to the general availability for the specific Windows 11 release.

The ni_release branch was available from February 16 to May 11, 2022. Afterward, Insiders in the Dev Channel has been moved back to the rs_prerelease branch.

On March 6, 2023, Microsoft announced that Dev Channel will be rebooted, and Windows Insiders will be receiving 23000 series builds going forward from the ni_prerelease branch. The first build released under this strategy, build 23403, was made available to Insiders two days later.

The ge_release branch has been available since build 26052. The version string has been changed from "22H2" to "24H2".
