Microsoft officially announces the Windows App Preview Program

Microsoft Ships the First Redstone 5 Build, Launches Windows App Previews

Now, the insiders who earlier opted into "Skip Ahead" and are still a part of it will receive Windows 10 Preview Builds under the RS_PRERELEASE branch, featuring the changes that may arrive with Redstone 5. Now there's Fast Ring Skip Ahead, which is faster than the Fast Ring, but more prone to borkage as it will offer the newest features whilst still in active development.

Microsoft is making it simple for anybody to test upcoming versions of Windows apps via the Windows Insider program. Skip Ahead users will receive a different branch of updates which will focus on the cutting edge, not created to represent a stable update. Although right now, the RS5 build 17604 isn't really any different to build 17101, at least not in terms of major features - there are just some extra minor tweaks, and known issues.

Apart from that, the new Windows 10 Insider Build will also come with updated emoji designs, improved control on file access permissions for Universal Windows Programs, and a number of bug fixes and performance improvements as usual.

Ministers banned from having sexual relationships with staffers
This statement is not and can not be a comprehensive statement of rules. "Doing so will constitute a breach of the standards". The opposition was unimpressed with the move, saying Mr Joyce had breached ministerial standards and should be sacked.

There are already High Performance and Game Mode settings available as well, but Microsoft wants to push things even further with Ultimate Performance mode. Microsoft's Dona Sarkar said in the announcement post that they have been able to find areas in Windows where performance and efficiency tradeoff is made and a collection of settings allows the system to adjust itself according to the user behavior, policy, and hardware. This means that Ultimate Performance won't be available for battery powered systems and will only be available to users of the specific Windows 10 Pro for Workstations operating system. The new scheme is touted to eliminate micro-latencies that are linked with the default power management techniques.

Finally, we mentioned the testing of individual Windows apps at the outset of this story, and Microsoft has indeed introduced a new Windows App Preview program.
