Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 11 for members of the Windows Insider program who signed up for updates on the Canary Channel. The build number for this update is 26217.

Based on the release notes, the new Canary Channel build is a fairly minor update, with a number of general but unnamed improvements, and it also lists fixes for two minor issues, along with a few known issues. Microsoft also has a reminder message for developers that the company currently does not plan to release an SDK for any of its builds in the Canary Channel. No word on when Canary SDKs will be offered again.

Here is the changelog:
