Microsoft continues to add finishing touches to Windows 10 version 2004 (20H1), the next major Windows 10 update coming later this spring. The build 19041.153 is now available for testing on the Windows Insider Slow Ring, and just like previous releases in that branch, the new bits only bring a couple of minor fixes.
You can check out the full release notes below:
General fixes and improvements
- 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, for more details please read this Windows Command Line blog post.
- 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.
- For more information about the resolved security vulnerabilities, please refer to the Security Update Guide.
- 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.
Microsoft has yet to announce when Windows 10 version 2004 will start rolling out to all users, but it shouldn’t be long before the update hits the Release Preview Insider ring. In case you missed it, the Windows Insider team also released the preview build 19582 for Fast Ring Insiders earlier this week, but recent builds coming from this new development branch have not brought us a lot of new features so far.
