Keeping in line with its usual schedule, Microsoft has released a new build of the Chromium-based Edge browser to Insiders in the Dev channel. Despite saying that last week's build would be the last one based on Chromium 85, today's version is actually 85.0.564.13, and it's a very minor update.
In fact, the new release didn't even get its own thread in the Tech Community forums, and the changelog is just a reply in the thread for last week's release. The most major change you'll notice is in the browser's ellipsis menu, where the previous release used very large icons for some of the menu items. The issue that caused that has now been fixed and everything should be back to its normal size.
Aside from that, there's only a handful of minor adjustments:
Additionally, we improved the relevance of Family Safety reporting data, and we fixed an issue where certain management policies like HomepageLocation or NewTabPageLocation stopped working and returned a message that they were blocked.
This is likely a small maintenance release while Microsoft readies the first build based on Chromium 86. That should arrive next week, hopefully with a more significant list of changes.
