Microsoft is rolling out another Preview Build of Windows 10 19H2 to Insiders in the Slow ring. Build 18362.10005 will also be delivered as a Cumulative Update and not a full build update. Here’s the complete changelog of the build, that looks more than just performance improvements:

  • Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios This update includes 5 fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation.
  • A fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS.
  • Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from in-tune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users.
  • A change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.

The Windows maker said that these new improvements are currently “off” by default. “As mentioned previously, we may ship features in these updates turned off by default and turn them on via controlled feature rollouts,” Microsoft wrote. “Doing this helps us gain better feedback on overall build quality. With today’s 19H2 build, we are testing this experience. Our plan is to quickly follow-up with another 19H2 build that turns these features on for a subset of Insiders and proceed from there based on feedback and quality.”
