A brand new version of what’s expected to be the first major Windows 8 upgrade is currently being tested by select developers, but no other specifics have been provided.

A couple of screenshots posted on PCBeta seems to confirm that Windows 8.1 build 9385 has been sent to developers around the world for testing purposes, as Microsoft is most likely working on the final preview version due this summer.

No details are available for the time being, so we can’t tell for sure if this new build brings any significant changes or not, but it’s pretty clear that the public release of the operating system is nearing.

Word is that Microsoft plans to unveil the first and the only beta in June at the BUILD developer conference, while the stable release might see daylight approximately two months after that.
