After pushing a new update to the Fast ring, Microsoft releases a new Windows 10 20H1 Preview Build 19041.153 for the Insiders in the Slow ring. Last year in December, the company moved the 20H1 or 2004 version to the Slow ring for testing. Since then, the company has only been pushing improvements and fixes but no new features. The company is trying to make the version more stable before the official release sometime in spring this year. This time also the build comes with a list of fixes and improvements but no new features.
Below is what the Build 19041.153 comes with:
- We fixed an issue that might prevent ActiveX content from loading.
- We fixed an issue that might cause Microsoft browsers to bypass proxy servers.
- We fixed an issue with rendering PeerDist-encoded content in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
- We changed how the Linux kernel in WSL2 is installed and serviced on your machine.
- Security updates to Windows Server, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Graphics, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Silicon Platform, Microsoft Edge, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Authentication, Windows Cryptography, Windows Kernel, Windows Core Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Peripherals, Windows Network Security and Containers, and Windows Update Stack.
We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3that resolves the known issue with Edge.
