Witness looks like a more puzzle based Rime which I've finally gotten around to because of PS4 last month will grab this for sure.

Already played ACS and DS2, so I got The Witness, always good for a little puzzle game every now and then instead of just action adv all the time.

Wow, 90% of the list is add-ons, guess that's fine if you own those games and want that stuff but I'll have to take a pass.

I think the add-ons are related to the games that were on sale during the Spring sale.

That might be, I did pick up fallout 4 during the sale but who knows when I'll actually get to play it. :p

Good list of original Xbox games on BC this week. Also a few days ago news hit that MS added a ex crystal dynamics executive, forget the name, to Microsoft studios. Wonder if this means that they're spinning up a new studio?

      Microsoft is winding down another Windows 10 feature, the Timeline
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft seems to be winding down on yet another Windows 10 feature that it made a big deal out of a few years ago. The company released a new Windows 10 build to Insiders in the Dev channel today, and with it came the announcement that it will no longer be possible to upload Timeline data from a Windows 10 PC, meaning it won't be accessible on other devices.

      The Windows Timeline feature was introduced about four years ago at Build 2017, though it wasn't until the following year that the feature would ship in a feature update for Windows 10. Timeline was a pretty significant change, as it let you access your recently open files and websites from the past 30 days, including the ability to sync that history across devices. Microsoft even brought the Timeline to smartphones some time later, emphasizing the focus on continuity between devices.

      However, things went pretty quiet after that, and the writing has been on the wall for some time when it comes to Timeline. In November of last year, the Timeline section was removed from the Microsoft Launcher preview, which was the only endpoint for the feature on Android.

      With today's Insider build, Microsoft's focus on continuity between devices seems to grow even weaker, though Microsoft correctly points out that many browsers already offer features like history and open tabs syncing, including its Chromium-based Edge browser. Recent Office files can also be found in the Office and OneDrive apps on different devices, but Microsoft is shying away from the all-encompassing implementation it had before.

      To be clear, your recent files and tabs on your current device will still be listed in the Timeline interface, at least for now. Microsoft hasn't outright said that it's discontinuing the feature, either, it just won't be able to sync across devices.

      The situation bears some resemblance to what's happening with the focus on 3D in Windows 10. Around 2017, Microsoft introduced the Paint 3D app and wanted it to be the one-stop-shop for 3D creation, but the app was recently removed from new installations of Windows 10 for Insiders, and the 3D Objects folder was also removed from File Explorer.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 21359 to the Dev channel
      by Rich Woods



      Right on schedule, Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 21359. You might recall that last week, the firm switched over to the co_release branch, so unsurprisingly, there isn't much in the way of new features in this build.

      There are some minor things though. For one thing, there's a new option to restart apps after signing in, which will appear in the Power menu. Also, you can't upload new activity to Timeline anymore, so you'll need to use OneDrive or Office to view recent files; indeed, Microsoft seems to be killing off Timeline.

      Here's the full list of changes and improvements:

      As always, there are a whole bunch of fixes and some known issues. Here's the full list of fixes:

      Finally, here's what's still broken:

      As always, you can grab the build through Windows Update. If you're not on the Dev channel yet, you can enroll via the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings.

      Mojang splits the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update into a two-part release
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      Mojang Studios announced last year that the next major content injection it's bringing to Minecraft will be the Caves & Cliffs update. As its name suggests, the update would overhaul the block-based sensation's cave and cliff generation rules, while also adding new mobs, items, and blocks.

      Today, the Swedish developer revealed that the original summer 2021 launch window will not be met exactly as planned, as the studio has decided to split the update into a two-parter. The first half is landing in the summer as previously announced, but it will only contain the mobs (Goat, Axolotl, etc), items, (Spyglass, Lightning Rod, etc), and blocks (Copper, Tinted Glass, various Cave Blocks, etc).

      The second half of the update, carrying most of the significant world generation overhauls and even changes to Minecraft worlds' build height, is now slated for launch during the holiday season.

      Mojang said that the magnitude of the update, its dramatic changes, the thorough polishing process, as well as the issues surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic were the reasons behind this new approach to the Caves & Cliffs update.

      "We’ve come to realize that to ship all the features in the summer we would’ve had to work very long hours; and even then, there would’ve been no guarantee that everything would be finished on time," it added regarding the last point. "Working from home as we cope with the pandemic is still challenging – not just in terms of morale but also by hindering teamwork. Because our workflow is so complex and collaborative, not having the option to walk up to someone and ask for help makes everything take longer."

      The company has set up a constantly updated FAQ page regarding the current situation with the update, which can be found here. Both Bedrock and Java Edition owners of Minecraft can continue to test the upcoming Caves & Cliffs Update features via the Experimental worlds also.

      Microsoft releases security updates for Exchange Server following report by the NSA
      by Usama Jawad

      In March, Exchange Server headlined the cybersecurity news section when it was discovered that it is under attack from state-sponsored groups. Microsoft was quick to release out-of-band updates for both supported and unsupported versions of Exchange, tools to break the attack chain, as well as advisories for customers. As a result of its efforts, hundreds of thousands of on-premises Exhange Server instances were patched against vulnerabilities. It is important to note that Exchange Online was not affected by this incident.

      Now, Microsoft has released yet another set of security updates for Exchange Server to tackle newly discovered Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerabilities.



      This time around, security updates are only available to Exchange Server 2013 CU23, Exchange Server 2016 CU19 and CU20, and Exchange Server 2019 CU8 and CU9. If you're not on any of the aforementioned cumulative updates (CUs), Microsoft recommends that you first upgrade to a supported environment and then apply the security updates. Once again, Exchange Online customers do not need to do anything.

      The Redmond tech giant says that the April 2021 security updates (SUs) patches RCE vulnerabilities that were privately reported to the firm by the National Security Agency (NSA). Although Microsoft's investigation indicates that the exploit is not being utilized by attackers, it still urges customers to apply the SU as quickly as possible.

      It is important to note that since SUs are cumulative, customers who apply the April updates will also be protected against vulnerabilities reported in March. However, customers with SUs released in March are unprotected against these new security flaws. Microsoft has cautioned that unlike last time, it does not plan to release out-of-band SUs for unsupported versions of Exchange Server. There are 47 old CUs affected by this flaw and it's not possible for Microsoft to invest effort in releasing updates for all of them. As such, it recommends updating to a current environment in order to apply the updates. Finally, the company has also noted that SUs have not been released for Exchange Server 2010 as it is unaffected by the latest vulnerabilities. You can find out more about the updates by heading over to Microsoft's blog post here.

      This week's Edge Dev build brings the Password Monitor to everyone
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft has released its weekly build of the Edge browsers for users running the Dev channel version of the browser. This update brings the browser version to 91.0.852.0, and it includes a handful of significant additions this time around.

      The new features include the completed rollout of the Password Monitor feature, which should now be available to everyone in the Dev channel. The Rebates feature for shopping online has also completed its rollout and is now enabled by default. Here's everything that's new:

      As with every build that's release to Insiders, there are also a handful of changes to improve the overall experience. One of the lists focuses on improvements to reliability, such as fixing crashes or hangs. Here's what's new:

      There are also other fixes focused on the browser's behavior:

      Finally, there's a list of known issues, which might make the experience less than ideal. These include some extensions not working on the Linux version of the browser:

      Microsoft also warns that next week's build is expected to be the last one based on Chromium 91, meaning it'll move up to the Beta channel around that time. Meanwhile, Edge version 90 should be promoted to the stable channel, too.
