Microsoft has released the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22478 for participants in the Dev Channel of the Windows 11 Insider Program, which is primarily aimed at developers and experienced users. In addition to the new emoji in the revamped Fluent design, the update stack package is also being updated.
Better updates and nicer emoji
With Windows 11 Build 22478.1000 – “10.0.22478.1000 rs_prerelease” – Microsoft once again gives insiders a glimpse into the future of Windows 11 and its future feature set for the upcoming versions 22H1 and 22H2, which will appear in 2022. With the new update stack package in version 521.920.111.0, “the process for providing new update improvements” is to be tested and improved outside of the function updates. Microsoft expects this to provide “a better update experience for customers”, but does not go into the background. In addition, the new emoji should now better match the UI of the operating system and its pre-installed built-in apps.
In addition, there are general changes and improvements to Windows 11 as well as the mandatory error corrections that traditionally flow into every new Insider Preview. Microsoft is making major adjustments to face recognition using Windows Hello and the index platform, among other things.
Extensive bug fixes have also been made and affect, among other things, the start menu and the taskbar, the file explorer and the Microsoft Edge browser as well as the settings and the control panel.
Further information can be found in the release notes on Microsoft's Windows Insider Blog.
