Microsoft is rolling out a new Insider Preview build for those in the Fast ring today that brings yet more improvements and changes to Fluent Design, Ease-of-Access and more. Today's build is 17025, so let's check out what's new.
- Revamped Ease of Access Settings: This build adds new Ease of Access settings to make your device easier to use and fit your needs. We also grouped related settings together which help you see, hear or interact with your computer to assist in discovering settings more quickly. Additionally, we heard your feedback and improved setting descriptions to help you more easily understand the available accessibility features. Go to the Ease of Access section in Settings to see what's available to make your computer easier to use!
- Controlling your Startup tasks: Continuing our work from the previous flight, with today's flight we've updated the Advanced options under Settings > Apps & Features so that UWP apps that are configured to run at startup will now have a new option to see all available tasks specified by the app developer and their status will now have a new option to see all available tasks specified by the app developer and their status.
- Evolving the Microsoft Yahei Font: As our Insiders from China likely know, Microsoft Yahei is the font we use to display Windows UI text in the Chinese (Simplified) language. We've heard your feedback, and with this build we're updating this font to improve the legibility, symmetry and appearance.
- Continuing our effort towards Fluent Design, in this build you'll notice that not only have we soften our light press effect based on your feedback, we've also enabled Reveal by default in CalendarView (seen, for example, in the Clock and Calendar flyout). UWP apps leveraging the Preview SDK for this build or higher will see this change automatically.
As always, you can check out the Windows Blog for the full changelog, including a list of known issues!
