Microsoft has released a brand new preview build for Windows insiders within the Fast ring.
Windows 10 build 19013 is really a testing version of the 20H1 update due in the spring of 2020 and codenamed Vibranium.
This new build doesn’t bring too many changes given it’s believed Windows 10 20H1 is already feature-complete, therefore the star from the show this time may be the introduction of more kaomoji.
Additionally, Microsoft has also improved the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2 with more refinements.
“Previously, your WSL 2 Virtual Machine’s (VM) memory would grow to satisfy the requirements of your workflow, but would not shrink down again when the memory wasn’t any longer needed. With this transformation, as memory is no longer being used within the Linux VM, it will be freed to Windows, which will shrink in memory size accordingly,” Microsoft explains.
This build also comes with early access to new DirectX 12 features, like DirectX Raytracing tier 1.1, Mesh Shader, and Sampler Feedback.
The finishing touches
Anything else is just effort on polishing the experience with Windows 10 20H1 prior to the RTM is signed-off and Microsoft begins the general public rollout to production devices.
You should check out the full changelog within the box after the jump.
Windows 10 20H1 is supposed to be finalized in December, based on information that reached the web recently. If the same release schedule is maintained, this feature update is going love everyone in April or May next year, but these dates are not yet been confirmed by Microsoft following the adoption of the new development cycle for Windows 10.
There are just three known issues within this build, and this is living proof Microsoft is making good progress towards finalizing this feature update. Among the bugs concerns BattlEye software compatibility, which Microsoft has confirmed in the previous build for Fast ring insiders.
