Following the release of a major version update earlier this week, today Microsoft released a minor service update for members of the Windows Insider program for the Dev channel. The update is numbered KB5012427 and after installation the version number rises to 22567.100.

Notably, the service update does not introduce anything new, but is intended to test the service pipeline in the Dev Channel version.

The full announcement reads: "We are starting to roll out Cumulative Update Build 22567.100 (KB5012427). This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline for builds in the Dev Channel."

As a result, all bug fixes and improvements from the earlier release of Windows 11 Build 22567 have been brought to the Dev Channel. This release has a ton of new features and bodes well for moving into the next phase of Windows 11, in preparation for version 22H2.

While there are no new changes in the Build 22567.100 preview release, previous service beta releases like this one also broke some features. For example, Windows 10 Build 21292.1010 caused issues with the x64 emulator on ARM PCs.
