Here’s what’s new in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 build 10532

Microsoft has rolled out a new Windows 10 desktop build for those of you participating in the Windows Insider program. With this new build of Windows 10, Microsoft has also updated Microsoft Edge with some new features available to preview.

In Windows 10 build 10532 (available to those of you in the fast ring), Microsoft Edge now features new EdgeHTML and Chakra features for all you developers out there. Here are the new EdgeHTML improvements:

  • Pointer Lock (Mouse Lock)
  • Extended srcset (sizes)
  • Canvas blending modes
  • <meter> element
  • oninvalid event handler
  • input type=time
  • input type=text selectionDirection

Here are the new Chakra features available in Microsoft Edge:

  • asm.js now enabled by default (previously behind a flag)
  • ES2015 Classes now enabled by default (previously behind a flag)
  • ES2015 Destructuring now available behind the Experimental JavaScript features flag
  • ES2015 conformance updates
  • ES2016 Async Functions now available behind the Experimental JavaScript features flag

There is one known issue in this build and it deals with Object RTC API. Here’s what Microsoft had to say: “Initial groundwork for the Object RTC API is in this build, but is not yet functional. This may trigger feature detection for Object RTC. A working implementation will be available in preview builds soon.”
