Microsoft today announced that the Windows 10 version 21H1 update is now available to businesses that can begin testing and validating features. Basically, this means that companies can try out the update to be ready when it starts rolling out.
As stated in the official statement, Windows 10 version 21H1 is a cumulative update from the previous version 20H2. Moreover, versions 2004, 20H2, and 21H1 share a common base operating system with an identical set of system files.
According to Microsoft documentation, the old Edge browser is being removed, but even that’s not entirely true. Edge Legacy will be removed from versions 20H2 and 2004 in the April Patch Tuesday update, so Windows 10 version 21H1 doesn’t actually remove Edge Legacy, but is the first version to ship without it.
As for what is actually in the update, there are not many innovations. Support for multiple cameras Windows Hello now allows you to select an external camera by default, there are improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard and improvements to Windows management instrumentation.
A week ago, participants in the Windows 10 Insider Preview testing program were able to download the update image. You can download the ISO image here.
Microsoft is working on a new modular version of Windows with AI. It will be similar to Android and MacOS
Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows that will be a modular and customizable version of the OS. The project is called CorePC and is designed to support various form factors.
This is not the first attempt to create a modular OS. Previously, there was Windows Core OS, which also appeared under the name Windows 10X. This system was supposed to be an updated OS without deprecated features and with support for UWP applications. However, she was never released.
As for CorePC, its main feature will be the separation of the system itself, user data and other files. In the current version of Windows, all of this information resides on a single system partition, while CorePC will support multiple partitions. This will speed up system updates, speed up resets, and improve security by making critical sections read-only. A similar approach is used in iPadOS and Android.
Also CorePC will allow Microsoft to make Windows a full-fledged competitor to Chrome OS in terms of size, performance and capabilities.
In addition, a version of the OS, codenamed Neon, is expected within CorePC, which maintains compatibility with legacy applications. Looks like it’s about win32 programs. Finally, a version without backwards compatibility is expected, but with built-in AI and optimization for hardware. This is similar to MacOS with M-series processors. This will allow you to create laptops and PCs that are just as fast and energy efficient.
Of course, these are only plans so far, although, perhaps, development is already underway in the bowels of the company. In any case, the release is still far away, and the situation may change more than once.
Another issue with Samsung Galaxy S23: camera app crashes when trying to use zoom
Samsung’s support page has posted a description of a new issue that Galaxy S23 users are experiencing. Its essence is that the camera application crashes as soon as the user wants to use the 30x zoom (and clicks on the corresponding button in the application).
Samsung has already analyzed the problem and concluded that this happens when the user “too quickly” switches between modes. The bug is promised to be fixed with a patch, and it is even already there – but so far it is being tested within the software development team. For users, the patch will be released in April.
