The Windows 10 Anniversary Update, build 14393.5, is now available for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring shortly before the wider world receives the patch on 2 August. It's on Windows Update as KB3176927, for those interested.
The Windows 10 Feedback Hub cites the big features of the update as "improved reliability and performance of Microsoft Edge with AdBlock and LastPass extensions enabled".
Edge, as we've opined recently, needs all the help it can get to run at anything even close to an acceptable level on a mid-tier machine, so this is potentially great news.
End users will also be pleased to hear that the extensions "should continue to work" after installing other extension updates from the Windows Store. "Should", eh? Nothing like confidence in your own abilities, is there Microsoft?
Meanwhile, crippling battery problems with portable Windows 10 devices have been addressed directly in 14393.5, with the promise that Microsoft has fixed a bug in which runaway CPU processes caused battery drain while devices were idle.
"We also fixed a battery life issue due to the proximity sensor always running on some devices," the firm said.
The list becomes increasingly dull beyond this, with middling errors like some Store apps not launching "due to a licensing issue".
Anyway, if you use Windows Update and aren't yet upset by it you'll be pleased to know that problems with systems using Connected Standby (formally InstantGo, the smartphone-like power management setup Windows 8 brought to the table) not running Windows Update are now fixed. So way more updates for you.
Further fixes include removing broken Search boxes in Store apps, and a problem where "keyboard input on some Windows tablet devices would not rotate to landscape normally".
We're actually not entirely sure what that last one means, but there's still plenty of times that our old Surface Pro boots with the screen completely upside down, so orientation generally may still be a problem.
