New Windows 10 Insider Preview Fast Ring Build 18965 (August 21)

The most notable new feature in Build 18965 is the ability to control restarting apps at sign-in. From release notes:

Windows now puts you in control with a new app restart setting. When turned on, Windows automatically saves your restartable apps when signing out, restarting, or shutting down Windows, and restarts them next time you sign in. This setting is off by default and you can change it any time in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and can find it by searching for “restart apps” in Start or the search box.

Build 18965 was again updated on the following day, August 22:
