Windows 10 build 11082 is the first preview build of the Windows 10 Redstone update branch which is expected to be released later in 2016.
According to an entry made on Windows blog by Gabe Aul, Corporate Vice President, Engineering Systems Team at Microsoft, the first Windows 10 Redstone build doesn’t contain any ‘big noticeable changes or new features’ just yet. Instead, the developers are focusing on users’ feedback on Windows 10 November Update, the first major update to Windows 10.
As noted earlier, Windows 10 Redstone build 11082 does not add any new noticeable features. Rather, it includes cumulative updates being rolled out to devices running November update including phones running Windows 10.
The most notable development on Windows 10 is ‘structural improvements’ to OneCore. OneCore, dubbed by Microsoft as the ‘heart of Windows’ is the shared core of Windows which allows the operating system to work across devices including PC, tablet, phone, IoT, HoloLens, and Xbox. The improvements to OneCore will make Windows more efficient across devices.

Along with the development and improvements to current and future builds of Windows, Microsoft is also planning faster pace of build availability. They are expected to pick up the pace starting from January.
“To do this, we are re-evaluating the ring promotion criteria to allow more builds to reach Windows Insiders. The new criteria will be much closer to our criteria for flighting to our internal rings, which means more builds will pass it and be released externally to the Fast ring.” – explained Gabe.
Gabe has also noted that starting with today’s Windows 10 build 11082, Microsoft will no longer publish known issues through Windows Blog. Instead, they will be listing known issues for each build in the Insider Hub
