Nice, I expected them to do an update or two before this started going out in June to people.  Hope this helps battery life and any other issues.

they do that with most of their updates not just with this one. It is rather sad that they wouldn't let us know what changed though. I have been looking around and have not seen a single difference so far.

Probably under the hood optimizations, nothing more. I wish the heck they would disable the double tap spacebar = "." I get tired of that one.

That's an option.  Go into Settings>Keyboard and tap on your keyboard's language.  You can then untick the option to "Insert a full stop after I double-tap the Spacebar".

Bug fixes and code optimization. Joe B. also mentioned battery life improvements. Don't need much of a changelog for these.

Ill have to wait and see about battery improvements. But, I will say my wifi is now showing the correct reception and general wifi speeds are better.

This needs to have an option. There are three punctuation marks that you really need: . , ?

. is there by default.

you can put , in there from options.

but ? is a pain to use.

 

Since first two are available in the keyboard directly, I wish I could configure double tab space to ?

Its less of an issue for me since I started using Wordflow, but I accidentally put periods in sentences constantly before.  I agree though, more options for this function are needed.

Wordflow has another major issue: you cant write a sentence in a go. I don't see why you cant swipe to space between words and write full sentence in one go...

Really? They already broke the world record. Don't you think they did usability testing? I can't imagine swiping constantly without lifting my finger. Even on glass my fingertip would start to get warm and sore.

How fast do you shape-write anyway?

Hard to say with only a day later but I think my 8X is back to the battery levels it was with 8.0 after this update.  I'll have to keep track though.  I also wouldn't be surprised if we see one more update right before or once they finally sign off on it and it starts going out to everyone, I don't think this will be the final build everyone sees rolling out in June.

SSTP primarily or DirectAccess. Vendors are allready deploying applications to support their remote access but Microsoft seems to be desperate to drive customers away from Windows Server 2012 remote access by refusing to support SSTP or DirectAccess (Who else is meant to) on WP.
