Microsoft has released a new preview version of Windows 10 for those registered to the Windows Insider Fast Ring, this time announcing a series of changes to the Linux Kernel.

With the May 2020 Update, or 2004 version, Windows Subsystem for Linux (which is in version 2 on this feature update) has a Linux kernel developed by Microsoft and today 's preview version comes with a major change.

From this version onwards, the Linux Kernel will be upgraded via Windows Update, just like any other component of Windows.

«Αλλάξαμε το μοντέλο ενημερώσεων του Linux Kernel για τις διανομές στο εσωτερικό του Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. Αυτή η έκδοση συμπεριλαμβάνει αυτή την αλλαγή που σας επιτρέπει να αφαιρέσετε τον πυρήνα του Linux από την Windows Update and maintain it through Microsoft Update, in the same way that third-party drivers (such as graphics or touchpad drivers) are installed and updated on your computer today, ”says Microsoft.

Today's version of Windows 10 also brings a new feature to Your Phone app: audio controls that enable desktop control on music and audio applications running on mobile devices.

The complete changelog, includes two known issues that cause installation delays. Microsoft says it is already investigating the issues and will release an update through Windows Insider to fix them. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
