Microsoft has updated the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 to support Arm64 devices for the thin portion of Windows Insiders that uses things.
The new build, 18980, for Fast Ring Insiders added support amid a series of adjustments for the developer-friendly feature.
In addition to Arm64 support (for which you will need virtualization), the WSL2 gang has also updated the custom Linux kernel to 4.19.67 and added support for battery transfer and AC adapter.
A problem with symbolic links (including those created by Windows for compatibility with earlier versions, such as

Far from attractive developer-friendly changes, Cortana, Microsoft's unloved assistant, has received even more attention, with the aim of making it easier for "all Windows customers to use Cortana."

However, the assistant itself only understands the American version of English at this time; Microsoft intends to add more regions and languages between now and the eventual launch in 2020 of 20H1.
The launch is otherwise light in new toys: all Insiders can now play with multiple selection and search by adding optional features, and Microsoft came out clean and admitted that Paint and Wordpad would be part of those features for users They wanted to save disk space.
The venerable Microsoft Paint requires less than a megabyte of storage, so if you have little space, you probably have other problems. in your hands. Maybe the Windows team would prefer not to be reminded of thinner and less bloated times.
The compilation, which remains a preview, also included a long list of solutions. Problems with Outlook were resolved, as well as a stalemate that left the updates frozen at 98 percent. The cloud reset functionality is also a bit lacking, and Microsoft has suggested users add an additional 5GB to the space they think they need.
Finally, Insiders who encounter a problem with Windows Mixed Reality will have trouble stopping the recording of a repro. Video to send comments. The dozen affected users will have to wait five minutes for time to run out. Or a little more before someone at Microsoft finally decides to delete the thing once and for all. ®
