Microsoft releases Windows 10 19H1 build 18362.385 and 19H2 build 18363.385 to Release Preview Insiders

Windows 2018 Oct 02

Microsoft has just announced the release of Windows 10 19H1, build 18362.385 and 19H2, build 18363.385, for the preliminary version of Insiders. Because Microsoft is still testing its "accelerated delivery approach" for 19H2, only a subset of Inside Preview Insiders currently receives 19H2 compilations, and the rest of them receive 19H1 compilations.

If you are currently a Release Preview Insider at 19H1 Build 18362.329, today you will get 19H1 Build 18362.385. On the other hand, Release Preview Insiders running the 19H2 Build 18363.329 today can now download the 19H2 build 18363.385 today.

Here are all the new 19H2 features included in build 18363.385, which are also available for Slow Ring Insiders that are currently testing Update 19H2:

  • Windows containers require a matching host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers to support mixed pod container pod scenarios. This update includes 5 solutions to address this and allow the host to run lower level containers at the upper level for process isolation (Argon).
  • A solution to allow original equipment manufacturers to reduce inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices instead of getting stuck with the latency selected in the typical hardware configuration by the operating system. AAD devices on demand from Microsoft Intune / MDM tools or each time the recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental disclosure of the recovery password as part of the manual unlocking of the BitLocker by users.
  • A change to allow third-party digital assistants to be activated by voice over the lock screen.
  • You can now quickly create an event directly from the Calendar drop-down menu on the taskbar. Simply click on the date and time in the lower right corner of the taskbar to open the Calendar drop-down menu and choose the desired date and start typing in the text box; You will now see the options online to set a time and location.
      Add events directly from the Calendar drop-down menu in your Taskbar!
  • The navigation pane in the Start menu now expands when you hover over it to better inform where the click goes.
  • We have added friendly images to show what is meant by "banner" and "Action Center" by adjusting notifications in applications to make this configuration more accessible and understandable.
      We've added friendly images to show what is meant by
  • Notification settings in Settings> System> Notifications now, by default, will classify notification senders according to the most recently shown notification, in Place of sender's name. This facilitates the search and configuration of frequent and recent senders. We've also added a setting to disable sound playback when notifications appear.
  • We now show the options to configure and disable notifications from an application / website directly in the notification, both as a banner and in the Activity Center. [19659005] We have added a "Manage notifications" button at the top of the Activity Center that starts the main "Notifications and actions" Settings page.
  • We have added additional debugging capabilities for newer Intel processors. This is only relevant for hardware manufacturers.
  • We have made general improvements in battery life and energy efficiency for PCs with certain processors.
  • A CPU can have multiple "favored" cores (logical processors of the highest available programming class). To provide better performance and reliability, we have implemented a rotation policy that distributes work more fairly among these favorite cores.
  • We have enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for companies that implement ARM64 devices in their organizations.
  • We have enabled the possibility for companies to complement the Windows 10 policy in S mode to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) applications of Microsoft Intune.
  • We are updating the search box in File Explorer so that it now works with Windows Search This change will help integrate your OneDrive content online with traditional indexed results. More details here.
  • We have added Narrator's ability and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key is on the keyboards and what state it is in (locked versus unlocked).

In addition, this update will now be offered if you use the Windows Defender Application Protector (WDAG) or containers.

NOTE: We continue to send 19H2 to 10% of Windows Insiders in the Version Preview ring automatically.

As a reminder, Microsoft announced on September 5 that all "seekers" in the Release Preview ring could now get on the 19H2 car by downloading the 19H2 Build 18363.329. At that time, the company also said that 10% of Insiders in the Preview Release should see that 19H2 Build 18363.329 is automatically offered. The Windows Insider team said today that it will continue to send 19H2 to 10% of Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring automatically, and that 19H2 Build 18363.385 is also available to all "seekers" in that ring.

If you find all this is very confusing, you probably are not alone. To summarize, Microsoft is currently testing the 19H2 update with Slow Ring Insiders, plus a subset of Release Preview Insiders that get 19H2 compilations automatically. If you are in the Release Preview ring and have not received any 19H2 version so far, you can install the newly released 19H2 Build 18363.385 version today looking for updates in Windows Update, and start testing all the new features mentioned above. [19659002] Update 19H2 or Windows 10 version 1909 should begin to be implemented later this fall for all users running Windows 10 version 1903 (May 2019 update). Microsoft can share more details about the public launch during its next Surface event on October 2, although the company may prefer to focus on its new hardware. Anyway, the test process for 19H2 has been a very unusual process for Windows Insiders, but we hope that this "accelerated delivery approach" has helped the team get the comments it was looking for.
