It has been a busy week for the Windows Insider program. From renaming the rings to channels, the company is now also releasing the first build of Windows 10 that will be released next year.
This build, version 20150 is rolling out now to the Dev channel (previously known as the Fast Ring). This is the first release from the Iron branch or the spring iteration of Windows 10,
There isn’t too much new in this release. But WLS users will get some nice updates:
- GPU Compute – a feature that allows your Linux binaries to leverage your GPU
- WSL install – allows you to install WSL with just one command
- WSL–update – the ability to manage the Linux kernel version used by WSL 2 distros
The other update is that if you are a user of Bing Maps, the data is slowly being replaced with TomTom bits.
As with all insider builds, you should not be installing this on a production machine. Even if the major reported issues do not impact your device, running alpha/beta builds on a device that you need to function properly is a risky endeavor.
