    Wow, this article left me so confused until I figured out it was just plain wrong.
    The Release Preview ring will get you the Spring Creators update, so the first paragraph is technically correct. But the features described in the rest of the article are part of the Skip Ahead ring for the next version of Windows after the Spring Creators Update.

    I also second that there's currently major factual errors with this article.

    The build that Microsoft is readying for release that's currently in the Release Preview Ring is NOT the release that you've described.

    The Sets feature you've described (and that is documented in the release notes you've linked to) is in the Skip Ahead Ring, which is the preview ring for the release in September this year. That's where the Sets feature is currently being worked on.

    The release that's in the Release Preview ring that's being readied for release contains the Timeline feature, a way to use the Windows 10 Task View functionality to go back in time and reopen previously worked on documents and activities.
