Microsoft has just released a new preview build of the upcoming Windows 10 20H1 update projected to go love everyone in April 2020.
Windows 10 build 18865 doesn’t bring any additional features, but this makes sense since we’re still in the early development stages.
What Microsoft is currently focused on is paving the way for additional substantial improvements, so expect new features to become implemented once we advance for the public launch.
In terms of what’s new within this build, everything boils down mostly to bug fixes, and you can browse the full changelog within the box following the jump.
“What’s new in this build?”
The highlights, however, concern Task Manager and BitLocker improvements, with Microsoft explaining the following:
“We fixed a problem where, if your computer supported Wi-Fi and you had the Performance tab set as default in Task Manager, on Task Manager launch, the Wi-Fi section within the Performance tab would seem to be selected, however the details displayed would be for the CPU section. We fixed a problem leading to some Insiders experiencing unexpected BitLocker prompts to encrypt certain drives, and then subsequently neglecting to encrypt.”
As it happens in every new build that’s pushed to users as part of the Windows Insider program, this era comes with several known issues, and every one of them have been there since the previous versions. For example, some Creative X-Fi sound cards continue to be no longer working properly, and also at the same time, launching games with anti-cheat software can lead to a fatal crash.
This can be a bug that also exists in Windows 10 version 1903 (April 2019 Update) and which Microsoft is supposed to fix as soon as possible given that the public rollout is just nearby.
Today’s build is different to users in the Skip Ahead ring (where seats are limited).
