Why am I being required to take the latest Developer Preview Program update?

This update contains our usual scope of fixes and improvements. We’re requiring this update so we can continue to test our update systems. The update will show as a "critical update" on your phone. 

Taking this update will get you to the latest build that we offer for the Windows Phone Preview for Developers program. This update will automatically install 72 hours after it’s been downloaded—or you can install it sooner. If you want to opt out of the program or do not wish to take this update, open the Preview for Developers app on your phone and clear the Enable Preview for Developers check box.

If you have any issues while taking this update, please let us know in the comments below. Reply with the following information: 

  • Error or problem you are experiencing. Include repro steps, if applicable.
  • The make and model of the device.
  • The OS Version and firmware revision on the device. This can be found by going to Settings > About and tapping the More Info button.
  • (Nokia Devices Only) The Manufacturer Name and Mobile Operator values. These are located under Settings > Extras+Info.

My team and I will be closely monitoring your feedback. Thanks for being such great participants! We're here and we're listening.

There's still an issue when someone sends me an outlook.com calendar invite that it errors out when you try to accept it.  This is the same issue that happened when wp 7.5 went to wp 8.

Still not fixed the huewei w1 sd card problem or false reporting on battery charge.

still not fixed the false reports of sd card corruption on the lumia 635 on start up or the fact it won't save the text messaging center number after a restart, always resorting back to the wrong number.

I just noticed that the Authenticator app and the Extras+Info app is not compatible after this fix.  The error suggests checking for update to Authenticator app in the Windows Store but I have the most current app.

I am running the Dev Preview on Nokia 920

Update: after a restart / reboot, several Apps started installing / updating.  The Authenticator App now works but the Extras+Info still gives me the error "extas+info can't be opened.  An update may be available in the Store"

Microsoft won't (possibly) say what exactly this update is fixing until a later date but I can say that this update won't be fixing issues that are hardware/firmware problems, this includes overheating (BlackVN).

As for the apps not compatible (Drive4Fun) you might find that Microsoft release updates for those apps to make them usable or release another update.
