Microsoft Releases Another 20H1 Build with No New Features

Posted on November 22, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 9 Comments

It’s getting a bit boring here in Insider land: Microsoft has released yet another new 20H1 build will no new features.

“Today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19030 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” Microsoft announced. “If you want a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring, head over to Flight Hub.” Don’t bother: The Flight Hub does not even mention this build, let alone list any new features, as is typically the case. Not sure why they always recommend that.

That said, there is one notable change in this build: The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present. Microsoft says that “this doesn’t mean we’re done.” But yeah. From a new features perspective, it kind of does.

    “this doesn’t mean we’re done..." with the ellipsis. I have a feeling that's not in the proper 'omitted' sense, but the current 'leading' sense.

    But... WSL2 virtual networking is barely WSL1-level on localhost! What about port availability over an intranet?

    I have the 19030 watermark on my Insider machines. In fact,, it was the watermark on one of them that tipped me off to the fact there had been a new release the day before, after which I triggered the installation on my other devices.

    Fix features like the Start Screen. No new improvements for touch screens.

    Sounds like they are making changes under the hood or optimizing systems. That's exactly what we've been wanting, isn't it?

    If 20H1 does get signed off next month and comes out in March/April as Version 2003. That would give four or five months to make sure alot of bugs are hopefully ironed out before GA, going gold, RTM, or whatever.

    That is OK by me. I am really digging the Edge Chromium Beta browser and polishing that off is MORE THAN enough improvement for me.

    The only think I would like to see in Windows 10 is a better mail app -- I like the Outlook app on Android. Also, I would like a means to set up Google maps as my default mapping via either a browser or PDA.
