Microsoft has rolled out one of the biggest new builds of Windows 10 to members of the Windows Insider programme.
Microsoft's beta testers received a 'cumulative update' in the form of Windows 10 Build 14328, released on the Fast Ring for testers who want more updates and are willing to accept the errors that can come with them.
There are a lot of new elements in this build representing the culmination of the announcements at the Build conference and the first look at the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 due for release in June.
Gabe Aul, corporate vice president at Microsoft's engineering systems team, explained that the new build adds several features and improvements including Windows Ink and an updated Start menu.
"With the amount of code change in this build there are going to be some rough edges, some of which are called out in the known issues," he said.
The Start Menu has been tweaked to make it consistent across all form factors, including mobile. A full-screen 'all apps' list has been returned to tablets after popular demand for an app drawer-type affair.
Cortana has also been added to the lock screen, although it will make you unlock if you want to do anything remotely sensitive. It now responds better when used across multiple devices and can ring your lost phone or alert you to low batteries.
The Notification Centre now keeps a tally of notifications you've missed and displays them in the Action Centre. Cortana is also here too, ready to assist with reminders and such.
Various tweaks to the Taskbar have been made, one of which is the ability to switch easily between speaker outputs without the need to access the default device's screen.
Other features include an early preview of the Skype Universal App for all Windows devices.
All updates come with a long list of warnings. The whole point of the Insider programme is to spot errors before they gets to market, but as a result the 'known issues' list is pretty intimidating. Think carefully before installing it, especially on your main PC.
