Windows Slow Ring Insiders To Get A New 19H2 Build Today

Windows Insiders in the Slow ring will receive a new 19H2 Build today (Ver. 18362.10005). Slow ring insiders running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will receive the new build as a Cumulative Update and not a full build update.

Change Log

“In addition to the fixes included in KB4507453 for the May 2019 Update, 19H2 Build 18362.10005 includes the following changes and 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.

“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.”

The devs are actively taking feedback with this build and they plan to follow up this build with a new one, activating the features for a subset of insiders. You can read the full blog post here.
