Los Angeles, Calif. - September 5th, 2019 - Today Microsoft announces to release Windows 10 19H2 Preview Build 18362.10019 to all Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. 19H2 is the code name of Windows 10 version 1909, which will be the second semi-annual Windows 10 update of 2019. It's a feature update expected to be released in September, following the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. What can we expect from Windows 10 19H2? Let's check it out with Build 18362.10019.
Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios. This update includes 5 fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation.
Includes a fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS.
Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from Microsoft Intune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users.
Includes a change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.
You can now quickly create an event straight from the Calendar flyout on the Taskbar. Just click on the date and time at the lower right corner of the Taskbar to open the Calendar flyout and pick your desired date and start typing in the text box – you’ll now see inline options to set a time and location. Microsoft has also updated iconography and displays for adding similar feedback to problems, upvoting suggestions, and adding comments to feedback. In addition, there’s a refresh of the Windows Insider Achievements page.
The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it with your mouse to better inform where clicking goes.
Adds friendly images to show what is meant by “banner” and “Action Center” when adjusting the notifications on apps in order to make these settings more approachable and understandable.
Notifications settings under Settings > System > Notifications will now default to sorting notification senders by most recently shown notification, rather than sender name. This makes it easier to find and configure frequent and recent senders. Also adds a setting to turn off playing sound when notifications appear.
Shows the options to configure and turn off notifications from an app/website right on the notification, both as a banner and in Action Center.
Adds a “Manage notifications” button to the top of Action Center that launches the main “Notifications & actions” Settings page.
Adds additional debugging capabilities for newer Intel processors. This is only relevant for hardware manufacturers.
Includes general battery life and power efficiency improvements for PCs with certain processors.
A CPU may have multiple “favored” cores (logical processors of the highest available scheduling class). To provide better performance and reliability, there is a rotation policy that distributes work more fairly among these favored cores.
Enables Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in their organizations.
Enables the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.
Updates search in File Explorer to show web-powered suggestions in addition to files locally indexed on the PC.
Adds the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key is located on keyboards and what state it is in (locked versus unlocked).
