It's once again time for a new Windows 10 build to be released in the Dev channel, and after build 21327 was released last week, it's now time for build 21332 to head our way. This build doesn't add anything new, but it does reset the rollout of the News and Interests feature that was announced in January and removes a couple of preinstalled apps for clean installs.
Aside from that, as these builds are part of an active development branch, you're more likely to find problems that may hinder your experience, but there are also some fixes for bugs in previous builds. The list of fixes is once again quite lengthy, and here's what's included:
- We fixed an issue where Surface Pro X devices would bugcheck when resuming from sleep.
- We fixed an issue where devices were experiencing hangs when Xbox controller were connected while shutting down, restarting, or entering sleep in recent Dev Channel builds.
- We fixed an issue leading to the About page of Settings not being present in the previous flight.
- We fixed an issue where the OS Info link on the Windows Update Settings page did not work.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Settings search results unexpectedly being missing in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue where if you go to Settings > System > Power & Sleep it would crash Settings for some Insiders.
- We fixed an issue where the status information was not being displayed under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update when you were up to date.
- We fixed an issue where the Chinese text for the lunar calendar in the clock and calendar flyout was not displaying properly in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue where it was unexpectedly possible to scroll the quick actions area of the Action Center when the region was collapsed.
- We fixed a bug affecting GPU Compute support in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. See this GitHub issue for reference.
- We fixed an issue where clipboard history might not update to display the latest entries.
- We fixed an issue where launching an app would dismiss the touch keyboard even though you’d used the taskbar button to manually invoke it.
- We fixed an issue resulting in gifs (via the touch keyboard or emoji panel) unexpectedly being inserted as a single image in certain apps.
- We fixed an issue where when using search to insert the red heart emoji from the touch keyboard or emoji panel, in certain apps upon insertion it would unexpectedly appear black, despite the app supporting colored emoji.
- We fixed an issue where when using the new dark mode for the Pinyin IME displayed tips would be unreadable due to having black text.
- We fixed an issue when typing with certain IMEs where Narrator wouldn’t announce when you expanded or collapsed the displayed information in the candidate window.
- We fixed an issue where certain TV tuners no longer were no longer working.
- We fixed an issue that could result in your PC bugchecking when renaming a file or folder on an SD card.
- We fixed an issue where devices running Trend Micro software may randomly bugcheck.
- An issue has been fixed where devices with Bitdefender installed experienced a black screen and/or explorer.exe crashes. Resolving the issue requires an update to the Bitdefender software.
Meanwhile, the list of known issues has slowly been shrinking as new builds are released, but there are still a few ones to look out for in this build. Here's the full list:
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- Live previews for pinned sites aren’t enabled for all Insiders yet, so you may see a grey window when hovering over the thumbnail in the taskbar. We’re continuing to work on polishing this experience.
- We’re working on enabling the new taskbar experience for existing pinned sites. In the meantime, you can unpin the site from the taskbar, remove it from the edge://apps page, and then re-pin the site.
- [News and interests] We’re addressing an issue where news and interests may not be available when signing into Windows without internet access but returns when online.
- [News and interests] Sometimes the news and interests flyout cannot be dismissed with pen.
- [ARM64] Insiders who installed the preview version of the Qualcomm Adreno graphics driver on the Surface Pro X may experience reduced brightness of the display. This issue is fixed with an updated version of the preview graphics driver at https://aka.ms/x64previewdriverprox. If you are experiencing this issue, please see the feedback collection for more information.
- Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) users who upgrade to this build will be unable to use the GPU Compute feature. We’re working on a fix for this. Users who do a clean install will not be affected.
- We’re working on a fix for an issue where some devices with Realtek network adapters running driver version 188.8.131.52 may experience intermittent loss of network connectivity.
- We are investigating an issue where on some high-refresh-rate monitors, games will only run at 60Hz. Variable-refresh-rate monitor scenarios may also result in tearing.
- The network flyout on the login screen doesn’t open on this build, which will prevent you from connecting to a new network before logging in. If your account is in a state that requires internet to log in, you can work around the issue by plugging in Ethernet, getting the device in range of a previously configured Wi-Fi network, or logging in with any other available account first.
- We’re working on a fix to address a DWM memory leak that was introduced in the previous flight.
Microsoft has a longer than usual development cycle on its hands for the next Windows 10 feature update, since both Windows 10 version 20H2 and 21H1 are minor updates. Later this year, Microsoft is expected to introduce a major UI overhaul for Windows 10 with the 21H2 update, which will likely include many of the changes in the past few Dev channel builds. However, keep in mind that these builds aren't necessarily tied to a specific feature update, and the changes may take longer to be implemented or may never be shipped at all.
