Microsoft has just released another update to Windows 10 Mobile, bringing us up to version 10586.122. The company notes that this isn't going to be the bulkiest release it's let loose, but that those coming from Windows Phone 8.1 should notice the most obvious improvements with regards to the upgrade experience. The company also added support for 4 new phones: MCJ Madosma Q501, BLU Win HD W510U, BLU Win HD LTE X150Q, and ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL.
This is one of the rarer builds that actually goes to the Slow and Release Preview rings, so if you're running the Fast ring and want to go with a more "stable" version for whatever reason, you will have to switch to one of those rings temporarily in order to update. You can then move back to the Fast ring and update as soon as a new build is released.
Those who are really willing to get their hands dirty are encouraged to provide feedback with regards to upgrading from WP 8.1. If you're already on Windows 10 Mobile, you can use the Windows Device Recovery Tool to downgrade to 8.1, and then freshly upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile again. That might sound like a strange thing to do for most, but this is all done in the name of testing by those who want to help.
A full list of fixes in 10586.122:
- Improved Kanji input experience while using Continuum.

As with all betas, the point of Microsoft allowing people to test out the latest builds is to provide feedback, so if you've been slack on doing so but have experienced problems, do the company a solid and chime in. With the number of releases we're seeing, it's clear that Microsoft is determined to make its latest OS as stable and feature-rich as possible.
