Better Bluetooth in Windows 10 and more local Azure toys via Docker containers

Summary Another new compilation of Windows, a flash of Bluetooth and Azure looks at space: it is another Microsoft weekly summary, categorically free of references to the Dark Mode, except that (damn it).

Microsoft invites Windows users will have a preview of the world of 2020, with better Bluetooth and even without sets

To help us wait for Windows 10 19H2, which should be little more than a cumulative update compared to the Last year's bomb, Microsoft released a new version of Windows 10 next year – preliminary version 18985 – for Fast Ring Insiders members.

Assuming you won your virtual coin toss against the electronics Dona Sarkar or Brandon LeBlanc, you would have been a member of the lucky 50 percent to try the latest gang crack in the Bluetooth pairing. Previously, a notification would have thrown a user to the Settings screen to end the pairing, but now the pairing of devices is done within the notifications.

Of course, you need a compatible device and Microsoft usefully lists some of its own. However, the improvement is welcome compared to the slightly awkward method of today.

The construction was otherwise light in new features, with updates for the Snip & Sketch screen capturer arriving at the launch preview ring (and even some lucky retail users) and corrects the download option "Reset this cloud of PC ".

While that error caused by anti-cheat codes continues to persist, it also seems that Microsoft has given up the old problem with some Realtek SD card readers.

The "known issue" will be eliminated and users still struggling will be asked to submit comments instead.

Finally, some users who sniff through other Windows code snippets noted references to the functionality of Deleted Sets for a long time. The sets, which allowed the grouping of application windows, were silently discarded last year when the Windows team focused on making 1809, the October 2018 update, as special as possible.

Could the function be on its way back in 21H1? [19659011] No.

So that's it.

Intelligent Edge of SPAAAACE

As to demonstrate that there really is no escape from the edge computing hype machine, Microsoft and Ball Aerospace was selected by the Defense Innovation Unit (IUD) to support the Operations Project Interconnected Space (CASINO) Commercially Increased Air Force of the United States.

The gang was responsible for making satellite data faster. Microsoft and Ball (unfortunately not a nerd comedy duo on Saturday night on TV of yesteryear) reflected on what it would take to link that data directly to the cloud.

While some might have thought of introducing more intelligence into satellites, Microsoft's solution was wonderfully low-tech: it stuck antennas on the roof of its data centers. It doesn't get much more direct than that. Data from multiple sources can be sent directly to the Microsoft cloud, and Azure can start processing them, either by combining them with other data or keeping things compatible with ITAR in Azure Government.

At this time, only 20 satellites are being transmitted. However, with the rapid anticipated growth in small satellite launches, adding some more dishes to the roof instead of more specially designed ground stations has some appeal.

Are you … local? Then we have some Azure cognitive improvements for you

Microsoft continued the trend of pasting Azure intelligence on local devices with the arrival of its latest and best text comprehension feature, Read, in Docker containers. Customers can run the containers locally to read text from images.

Reading is a step forward from the RecognizeText function, which was able to extract printed text (for example, from business cards). Reading takes things a little further and can detect handwritten text, although, to be honest, when we play with it, we find it a bit unpredictable. On the other hand, 35 years of strokes on keyboards have left this trick with writing terrible .

Read also supports TIFF, PDF and multiple pages. It only works with English.

The old RecognizeText function should be discontinued as of October 4, so those who use these cognitive services to analyze the text should update their version.

PowerShell 7 moves to fourth

Microsoft has released a quarter a preview of the next PowerShell 7 as the command line favorite moved closer to a planned launch for January 2020.

Administrators with a Little experience in C # will be pleased to see the arrival of the ternary operator ( ?: ) At this time. While the Boolean-botherer will not replace the good old-fashioned yes ... if not it is good to have it.

Other adjustments in the large bag of experimental features include a -WorkingDirector for the cmdlet StartJob better debugging tools and the ability to compile DSC configuration scripts for mof files on platforms They are not Windows. The gang warned that the last feature is still "work in progress."

Of course, everything remains a preview, so caution should be taken independently.

A new Java update for Visual Studio Code and a new source for everyone else

The September update of Java in VS Code arrived last week with improvements to refactoring, live linting and adjustments to the entire experience Getting Started

Motion refactoring has been added to allow developers to divert packages and classes around a project. Class members can be moved to other classes and internal classes increase the hierarchy. Obviously, this could be done manually, but refactoring tools are always welcome.

The gang has also added support for Live Linting and batch checking for Java through the Checkstyle extension, which means that files cannot be saved one by one to see the result, and made the console integrated into the terminal. default debugging. VS Code Java Test Runner also supports more JUnit 5 annotations.

What is not in the update is the new Brilliant Cascadia Code monospaced font shown at the Microsoft Build event in May.

Finally available from GitHub and because it will be included with the next Windows Terminal update, the font is a nice addition to the existing family of monospaced fonts used in text editors.

It is also compatible with ligature programming, although you must enable the ligature source in the VS Code configuration to actually use them.

And yes, being this the new Microsoft, it is licensed under the SIL 1.1 Open Source License.

The Windows Terminal originally had the code name "Cascadia", so the name of the source is not a big surprise, although more than 7,000 Twitter users voted in a poll that could have seen the so-called "Code from Seattle. "

Unfortunately, "Fonty McFontface" was omitted from the list of names. A missed opportunity ®
