Today, Microsoft is pushing a compiled version of Windows 10’s build 19030 to Insider testers who have turned on the Fast Ring channel, meaning the public is one step closer to the 20H1 update. As last week, Microsoft also pushed two compiled versions to Fast Ring this week, with the version number 19028 on Tuesday. Such frequent updates indicate that Microsoft is actively preparing for THE RTM release.

In recent weeks, Insider testers have not received a real content update. In addition, Microsoft has removed the waterprint of Insider Preview in an upcoming release.
But Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc points out in a blog post that this doesn’t mean the development team has done the work. What is known is that they are still busy with 19H2, so it may be weeks before a real RTM version is available.
Although there are no new features, build 19030 brings some bug fixes and improvements:
The screen watermark is removed from the lower right corner, but this does not represent a significant progress update.
If you start resetting the MSA pin on the login screen and then shelving it for a period of time (not interacting with it), it may cause a black screen (a reboot is required to fix it).
When the system is connected/disconnected to the secondary display, the night mode setting of the main screen may fail.
When watching a longer HECV video, you may be prompted to run out of memory.
Some apps may not be able to fully fill the screen when they are maximized.
There are other known issues:
Some testers preview issues that are incompatible with the Version and BattlEye Anti-Cheat software, and users are advised to avoid specific software versions.
When you try to install a new version, the update process may hang up for a long time.
After starting with A URI (ms-sets), the settings are still unavailable.
After the printer driver has been successfully installed through the Optional Updates section, the issue that can be installed is still displayed.
The development team is investigating an issue where some USB 3.0 hard drives did not start after connecting (Start Code 10 or 38).
As is customary, we should not be able to have a 20H1 version of Windows 10 RTM by spring 2020.

But in October, a report said Microsoft might adjust its twice-yearly RTM release cycle to June/December.
