- We fixed the issue causing the IIS configuration being set to default after taking a new build.
- We fixed an issue that could result in a key press not waking up a device from connected standby in certain scenarios.

- We're looking into an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage may bugcheck when resuming from hibernate.
- We're looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We're working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).
- We're looking into reports that taskbar preview thumbnails aren't rendering consistently (showing a blank area).
