Microsoft is releasing a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders in the Fast Ring today. The company is rolling out build 19564 to Insiders in the Fast Ring this evening.

The new build does not include a lot of major new feature, but there is a key new improvement, along with the usual bug fixes.

The new build comes with an improved experience for Graphics Settings in the Settings app. Microsoft is introducing better control over your GPU settings with the updated interface. The GPU preference and app list are now “pre-populated on a best effort basis” to improve the default preference management experience in Windows 10. There’s also a new search box and filtering options that make it easier to find your apps.

More importantly, Microsoft is introducing a new preview of the Calendar app in Windows 10. The new preview is available to Windows Insiders starting today and introduces a new interface that seems to look much better than before.

The opt-in preview lets users choose from 34 different themes, and comes with a new month view. Microsoft has also simplified the process of creating new events, and there’s now a redesigned account navigation pane as well. “We’re updating the Calendar app for Windows 10 with improved features, new themes, and a cleaner interface that’s easier to use. The Calendar preview is an early look at this update. It will initially include a subset of the features currently available in Calendar today, and we’ll be adding more features each month,” the company said.
