While Microsoft has not released any official updated build for Windows 10 Insiders, unofficial sources have leaked Windows 10 build 10558. This build features a number of notable and interesting changes. Let's see what is new in the leaked build.
The major change in Windows 10 build 10558 is that the Universal/Metro app "Messaging" is back again. You might recall that Windows 8 had a Messaging app which was discontinued. Also, Skype and Microsoft Edge apps have been updated.
Microsoft is working hard on their browser. In this build, Edge comes with the following changes:
- Tab previews. All mainstream browsers have this feature, now Edge has it too.
- Updated interface for the Download manager.
- Updated interface for Developer Tools, which can be docked now.
Users who already installed the leaked build will notice improved browser performance. However, it might be a placebo effect of a freshly installed build.
This fancy feature was added to Home and Pro editions in pre-release builds of Windows 10, but in the RTM build 10240, it was removed probably because it was not finished. Microsoft is working on bringing it back with the Threshold 2 Autumn update, which is expected in November 2015.
The leak was from Wzor of Russia. The image is not official. There is no info on whether it is tampered with. Interested users can refer to Wzor's twitter for the download link.
