Windows 10: nuova beta dell'aggiornamento di inizio 2020

Microsoft, dopo la pubblicazione delle ISO, ha iniziato la distribuzione della nuova Preview della build 18845 di Windows 10, che era disponibile per i tester dal 28 Febbraio.

Questa nuova versione rientra nell'aggiornamento 20H1, il major update che il gigante di Redmond dovrebbe lanciare nel corso della metà del prossimo anno e su cui sta già lavorando.

Di seguito il changelog ufficiale:

  • Fixed an issue where Narrator continuous reading in Edge did not keep the text cursor at the position where reading was started from.
  • Fixed an issue where Narrator Scan mode down arrow navigation might get stuck when reading in Chrome.
  • In Windows Sandbox, Settings app no longer crashes when you navigate to the Narrator settings.
  • Fixed an issue where the time shown on the clock in Windows Sandbox might not match the clock outside of Windows Sandbox.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in some devices unexpectedly experiencing a 30 second wait before pin re-entry was available after a pin was incorrectly entered on the lock screen.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in Emoji 12 emoji showing up as boxes in certain XAML text fields.
  • Adjustments to improve WIN+(period) reliability.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in the Start menu not launching if the GPO to turn off the all apps list in Start was enabled.
  • Fixed an issue where the default Microsoft Word web tile pinned to Start (in the case where Office wasn’t installed) was unexpectedly launching Microsoft Edge in inPrivate mode.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft Edge sometimes crashing when editing or tabbing through PDFs.
  • A change to improve cloud clipboard (if enabled) sync reliability.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in the lock screen unexpectedly not dismissing until Ctrl+Alt+Del was pressed.
  • Fixed an issue where if high contrast mode was enabled during Windows setup, that state wouldn’t persist first logon.

Nel bollettino però Microsoft riconosce anche che questa build ha ancora qualche problema:

  • Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).
  • If you use third party apps to adjust the color of your screen, we’ve made a fix with this build to address feedback that certain apps were no longer working.
  • For display calibration scenarios, monitors may be missing in the built-in Color Management application. As a work around, please use the Settings app to select color profile instead, under the Display Settings page.
  • When performing Reset this PC and selecting Keep my files on a device that has Reserved Storage enabled, the user will need to initiate an extra reboot to ensure Reserved Storage is working again properly.
  • Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly.
  • Mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in.
  • Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly.
  • Investigating an issue preventing VMware from being able to install or update Windows Insider Preview builds. Hyper-V is a viable alternative.
  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Skip Ahead and switch to either the Fast ring or the Slow ring, optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.

Come sempre, Microsoft sconsiglia di installare la versione beta di Windows 10 sulla propria macchina principale. L'aggiornamento più importante riguarda la funzionalità Skip & Sketch, aggiornato alla versione 10.1901.10521.0, che ha ricevuto la correzione di vari bug relativi alle immagini sfocate, la copia, i nomi dei file, l'assistente vocale ed il salvataggio.

Quanto è interessante?
