Dopo svariati giorni di silenzio, Dona Sarkar del team del Windows Insider Program torna a farsi sentire per annunciare il rilascio di una nuova Insider Preview di Windows 10. Distribuita attraverso il Fast Ring (dunque è una preview di Windows 10 Creators Update), questa nuova Build è numerata 15043 sugli smartphone mentre su PC e tablet viene identificata con il numero 15042.
Nota: prima di installarla leggete bene le note relative ai problemi noti.
Di seguito le novità più importanti che porta con sè:
- Una nuova animazione di Cortana sarà visibile in fase di prima installazione del sistema (OOBE), vedi qui.
- Nuovo popup che avvisa del blocco di un contenuto Flash su Microsoft Edge, vedi qui.
- Migliorata l’esperienza di lettura di EPUB in Microsoft Edge: modificata l’icona visibile nel tab degli EPUB presenti in locale (vedi qui); se si cambia pagina durante la lettura ad alta voce di un EPUB il lettore porterà automaticamente alla nuova pagina; se si modificano le impostazioni di lettura ad alta voce durante la lettura di un EPUB esse rimarranno attive anche nelle successive letture.
