After the Patch Tuesday, Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 Preview build 19645 for the Fast ring users. The build is again released from the mn_branch. As released from the mn_branch, the build brings no new features but included improvements and fixes related to Taskbar preview thumbnails, Windows Hello Setup, hibernation, etc.
Moreover, in today’s build, the company notified that Your Phone app’s media controls are being rolled out to the general public. This feature of the app will allow the users to control any audio of playing media on your phone directly within the app.
Here is what’s included in build 19645:
General changes & improvements
- We changed the servicing model for the Linux kernel inside of Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 distributions. This build includes this change to remove the Linux kernel from the Windows image, and instead have it be serviced via Microsoft Update, the same way that 3rd party drivers (like graphics, or touchpad drivers) are installed and updated on your machine today. For full details please read this blog post on the Windows Command Line blog and for information about the kernel version please view the kernel docs page here.
- Support for Nested Virtualization on AMD processors is now available. Being an early release we recommend you read this blog post for details on what platforms currently work as well as how to enable the feature.
- We’ve fixed an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage bugchecked when resuming from hibernate.
- We fixed multiple Japanese and Chinese IME issues that impacted IME mode switching within applications and Windows notification area.
- We’ve fixed an issue where taskbar preview thumbnails weren’t rendering consistently (showing a blank area).
- We fixed an issue resulting in the handwriting input panel not appearing in certain text fields after being tapped with a pen.
- We fixed an issue where resizing a snapped application in tablet mode would minimize the app to the taskbar instead of adjusting the app size.
- We fixed an issue where Windows Hello Setup would crash if facial recognition was already set up and you chose the Improve Recognition button.
- We fixed an issue for some users where your PC wouldn’t recognize it when you inserted a smart card (event log showing error 621).
The build also comes with a couple of known issues to be aware of:
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy, the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).
You can get this update via Windows Update if you are already enrolled in the Fast ring under Windows Insider Program. And you can get more details on the build at Windows Blog.
