Microsoft has just announced the release of two new 19H2 preview builds for Slow Ring Insiders. Once again, Microsoft will be doing some controlled feature rollouts, which means that only select Insiders in the Slow Ring will get new features today.
If you previously installed the 19H2 Build 18362.10012, you’ll get the build 18362.10014 today with new features turned off by default. On the other hand, Slow Ring Insiders who previously received the build Build 18362.10013 will get the build 18362.10015 with the following new features turned on by default:
- We have enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in their organizations.
- We have enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.
- We have updated search in File Explorer to show web-powered suggestions in addition to files locally indexed on the PC.
- We have added 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).
If you have yet to join the Slow Ring and install your first 19H2 build, Microsoft says that it will be using a virtual “coin toss” to determine whether you’ll get the build 18362.10013 or build 18362.10015. According to the software giant, the purpose of these controlled feature rollout is to “help us gain better feedback on overall build quality.”
The 19H2 update will ship later this Fall as a regular cumulative update for the Windows 10 May 2019 update. It will be pretty much like the service packs for previous versions of Windows, and the fall releases of Windows 10 now get 30 months of support (instead of 18 months) for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education users.Further reading: 19H2, build 18362, slow ring, Windows 10, Windows Insider
