Microsoft follows the development of Windows 11 apace and has just released a new preview version, the first build after the one released in the OS announcement. Microsoft has also launched the first Bug Bash program for the system and, already unofficially, versions of the operating system have been leaked.
Microsoft has released build 22000.65 to the Insiders test channel, promising extensive user experience improvements . The version comes with a long list of changes, improvements, and bug fixes over the original version.
Among the most notable novelties, point to the Start menu which now ships with a search box to facilitate searching for files, while the taskbar can now be configured to display on multiple screens. A new update option has also been added to the desktop context menu and some system alerts are updated.
Microsoft has fixed quite a few bugs, in the taskbar, the configuration tool, the file explorer and the widgets, as well as the crashes discovered in explorer.exe and various graphical UI errors. Also, the Redmond people have shared a list of all known issues affecting the system. Of course, they are still development versions that should not be used in production environments.
‘ Bug Bash ‘ is a special program for software companies (and testers in general) to thoroughly test the product and identify bugs or problems that would be fixed in future versions.
Microsoft performs a Bug Bash for every major Windows update in order to collect feedback from Windows Insiders. The first for Windows 11 will run from July 7 to July 14. Members of Windows Insiders can test these workflows and submit feedback that will be posted by Microsoft for general knowledge.
After the program ends, Microsoft will reward Windows Insiders members with participation-based achievements . If you are interested in participating, you can navigate to Missions in the Feedback Center in Windows 11 and complete them to earn achievements. Microsoft will add new missions as the week progresses.
Windows 11 could be released in seven different editions , two more than the official Windows 10. The list has appeared in the database of the Bluetooth group SIG that manages the wireless standard of the same name and they are as follows:
- Windows 11 Home
- Windows 11 Pro
- Windows 11 Pro Education
- Windows 11 Pro for Workstations
- Windows 11 Enterprise
- Windows 11 Education
- Windows 11 Mixed Reality
And those at least, because a few days ago a supposed Windows 11 SE version appeared on the Internet that would correspond to either the S mode of the system or the new Cloud PC that Microsoft will launch for companies.
