Today, it has come to our knowledge that Microsoft has started pushing out Redstone 2 builds internally. This indicates that build 14393 is the final build of the Redstone 1 development branch known as "Anniversary Update" or version 1607.
The information came from the buildfeed Twitter account which tracks all branches, labs and builds visible through Windows Update servers.
The full build tag looks like this:
The Redstone 2 branch was started a few months ago internally at Microsoft with 148xx builds. Since the development of Redstone 1 is now over, Microsoft has jumped build numbers for the next milestone.
The Redstone 2 update will get a bigger focus on first-party apps and will expand the user's task flow across multiple devices. The most interesting feature of the Redstone 2 update is Task Continuation which will allow users to start a task on one device and then resume and finish it on another. Also, Redstone 2 is expected to bring notable changes to Action Center, Microsoft Edge, Windows Update, Cortana and may also add some integration with Office 365 services. Cortana is expected to become a system-wide assistant. Notification Center / Action Center might get support for widgets, offering quick snapshots of data, synced across your Windows 10 devices.
Also, Windows 10 Redstone 2 is expected to get an updated File Explorer.
These are all rumors. Nothing has been confirmed or announced officially by Microsoft.
