Roundup While EE. UU Prepared to celebrate his escape from the clutches of British control, an American exercise if he so wishes, Microsoft continued its rich tradition of launching software and correcting errors.
Eye Eye is another compilation of Windows 10
After the surprising revelation that (1) Windows 10 19H2 would be one thing and (2) that thing would be little more than a service pack skipped, the Windows gnomes Microsoft continued to work hard on the next operating system of the year with a release of 20H1.
Compilation 18932 has to do with accessibility and eye control.
It is difficult to see the functionality of eye control in Windows 10 as something other than A Good Thing, and Microsoft has continued to improve the technology. . Making an appearance in this version is a drag-and-drop implementation and the ability to combine clicks and trawls with the modifier keys
shift . The crew has also improved the pause experience and added switch support to increase the existing "pause" method to click on a button.
If enabled, Narrator will also start reading web pages when it loads, starting at the main reference point, as well as automatically reading emails when it opens in Outlook or in the mail application in the inbox. Finally, on the accessibility front, the venerable application of the Lupa now enjoys different zoom levels for the light and dark modes.
The gang has also had a fiddle with notifications in Windows 10, adding online options to disable notifications for an application and, fortunately, what simplifies the silencing of things.
Microsoft's unpaid tester army had more reason to rejoice last week, as the company trumpeted the arrival of a web hub from which most of its Insider programs can be found.
For #WindowsInsiders and beyond, we are putting together all the Microsoft Insider programs on an easily accessible landing page. Take a look at the newly launched website! 😻 https://t.co/7WrlJmX039
– Windows Insider (@windowsinsider) July 2, 2019
For those who do not know, Microsoft's Insider programs allow users to get early access to previous versions of the company's software. The likes of Bing, Edge, Office and, of course, Windows have an appearance and Xbox for players with time on their hands.
Unfortunately, the page does not represent a rationalization of the programs or a Consistency of the approach. Instead, it is simply a link store for those who can not use Google to find the Insider program of their choice.
On the other hand, when everyone is an Insider, surely nobody is.
Microsoft loves Android (notifications)
Also before the company closed before the day of the fireworks and tanks was the integration of phone notifications with the phone's display function. The theory says that clicking on the notification will activate the phone screen on the Windows 10 desktop instead of the user picking up the physical phone.
It's an interesting feature but, unfortunately, it's only available for a very limited set of users. Not only do you need to have the Windows update installed on May 10, 2019 (or the most recent), but you also need a Samsung phone recent with Android 7 or higher (or OnePlus 6 or 6T) and a computer with a bluetooth radio that supports it. Annoying low-energy peripheral paper. Therefore, it is still a fairly limited portion of the inside information.
If you're one of the many who can not use the Phone Screen feature, do not worry: clicking on a notification will only send you the notification.
SMS and MMS are still hidden in the messaging node of your Phone application independently.
Even so, there was some good news for those who remain resolutely with the April 2018 Update: the Notifications feature will make an appearance for those delays on their phone during the next few days.
One stitch in time saves version 6.5 (from Azure Service Fabric)
After suddenly stopping the release of version 6.5 of Azure Service Fabric in June due to what Microsoft delicately described as "problems", the company has issued an "update".
At least one user reported that the original update caused name resolution problems in Docker, which required a downgrade.
In fact, for Docker Compose customers who had made the upg After having experienced problems of cluster availability, the gang asked users to contact them for help in solving the problems. Otherwise, a jump to the latest version 6.4 and then the brilliant Refresh Release of 6.5 was in order.
Only two bug fixes are shown in the release note, with a direct impact on Ubuntu that involves an additional fabric
: / added to the name of the application instance. The error "causes the creation of the composition application to fail". And now, according to Microsoft, it's not like that. Hurray!
Service Fabric, which will happily run on Windows or Linux, is Microsoft's version of a microservices platform and hides behind many of the company's cloud services. While the company is in the midst of changing things to open development and has promised that the code for version 7 will be published in the repository in November, developers may be tempted by the charms of Kubernetes these days. It was not helpful to launch version 6.5 for hasty repairs.
I bless the data in Africa: action of MySQL, MariaDB and PostreSQL for Azure
After having opened the doors of its South African regions in 2018, Microsoft has added the MySQL, PostreSQL and MariaDB versions of the base Azure data. The databases are now generally available in North Africa and South Africa.
The movement further strengthens Microsoft's opacity in the region. Archrival Amazon plans an AWS region in South Africa consisting of three availability zones, but is not expected to activate the "on" switch until the first half of 2020.
Like Microsoft, Amazon believes that sub-Saharan Africa could use the lowest Latency of something a little more local. The fact of being able to store data in a place closer to your home will also make some customers more happy.
The Google Cloud Platform currently has no public plans for a data center in the region, but instead focuses on South Korea, Indonesia and the United States for expansion. ®
