Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 Redstone 5 to Insiders today. The latest build, 17713, brings a couple of improvements to Notepad, as well as Microsoft Edge, and some IT Pro features.

 

In Redstone 5, Microsoft is upgrading Notepad to include some much-requested features. The company earlier added support for line endings to Notepad, and it’s now adding a couple of new features. First up, the Find feature in Notepad now supports wrap around when replacing words, and it also now remembers your preference for all the options so you don’t have to set them everytime you use the feature.

 

Additionally, when you now select a word and then hit Ctrl+F, the Find dialog will automagically populate the dialog with the selected word for your own convenience. That’s not all — Notepad now supports text zooming with Ctrl + Plus and Ctrl + Minus, which is honestly amazing. And lastly, you can now display line and column numbers with word-wrap enabled, and use Ctrl + Backspace to delete the previous word. It’s also now faster at opening larger files.

Edge is getting a number of improvements in this update, too. It now lets you set per-site media autoplay permissions from the website identification pane, so you can automatically block media playback on certain sites. The PDF reader includes some design tweaks to make all the different options more understandable, and the PDF toolbar can now be pinned to the top for easier access. It’s also now possible to lookup definitions of words in PDFs, Reading View, and Books.

 

Build 17713 includes a number of features for IT Pros, and the general fixes — so make sure to checkout the full changelog here. The build is available to Insiders in the Fast Ring right now. In other news, Microsoft is resetting Skip Ahead as it’s nearing the public release of Redstone 5, but it will open up Skip Ahead again in the near future when you will once again be able to join the program, even if you aren’t part of Skip Ahead originally. Finally.

It's a shitty build, the same as the two previous builds.

Almost all third party AV/IS blocked or crippled imposing windows defender... that's not right...

That makes me wonder if they didn't learn from IE in the past...

From Redstone 4 they removed their simple antivirus panel which looked like old Security Essentials. Now MSASCui.exe does not open antivirus. Instead it open control panel antivirus settings! We expect in future removing of Edge browser control and it should look in Metro style on full screen as you control the mobile phone. :lmao:

Microsoft is giving its Notepad app for Windows a surprising amount of new features. While the software giant hasn’t updated Notepad for years, the next Windows 10 update will include some highly requested additions. Microsoft is clearly listening to Windows 10 users who use notepad for development, logs, or simple text manipulation.

You’ll soon be able to do wrap around find and replace alongside the ability to zoom into text by holding down the ctrl key and using the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Microsoft is also adding in extended line ending support so that Unix/Linux line endings (LF) and Macintosh line endings (CR) are supported in Notepad. The status bar will now be enabled by default in Notepad, and it includes the ability to display line and column numbers when word-wrap is enabled.

Microsoft is also finally adding in ctrl+backspace support to delete a previous word in Notepad, and performance improvements for large files. You can now even search for words on Bing through Notepad by simply right clicking on them to get a new option. Microsoft’s Notepad additions follow the company updating its Windows Console for the first time in 20 years, and the surprise addition of the Linux command line to Windows 10.

These new Notepad features will appear in the update currently codenamed Redstone 5, which is expected to debut later this year. Microsoft is now putting the finishing touches on the next major Windows 10 update, but it won’t include the popular tabs (Sets) feature for File Explorer and other apps.

right now with insider editions ,M$ doesn't care about 3rd party AV/IS apps

it's only concerned about it's own apps. you'll have to wait till it's close to being rtm

also defender isn't a bad AV anyway ,in a few years it'll be in the top 5 anyway,if it isn't already

It's not about how bad/good defender is, is about choices. We insiders paid for a windows and AV/IS license, they cannot do whatever they want.

If the OS is flawed then the AV is flawed as well. It will never get to the top 5 since relies in a flawed OS.

I repeat myself, it's about choices.

Microsoft have explained several times (since late 2014) that is not recommended to use third party AV with Insider Preview Builds, due there is a lot of kernel changes, and the AV are not updated at the same time that these changes in kernel are introduced, so for obvious reasons it could cause incompatibilities.

 

if you are an Insider you should already know (since 2014) about it.

I got that part,but it's a Preview,not mainstream

So all bets are off

This is only a beta build for testing.

I'm an Insider since 2015 and I know the risks. But if they don't offer a reliable solution for security, then what can I do? I need a 3rd party solution.

At least I'm able to use CIS (instead of NOD32 and Comodo FW) and works fine and it's free, although it's not recognized by MS/defender as an AV but as a FW. No crashes, no GSOD's, no degradation (defender has a big impact in system resources).

And I still state, this build is shitty as hell. SNMP service using 6% of CPU 27/7 doing nothing? Is that an improvement? There where better builds before the last 3. And the problem with AV's is for almost all AV vendors. That's not a change in the kernel it's a policy (and it's hardcoded since I couldn't find anything by all means), since all kernels changes has been announced.

And for testing purposes, why they block 3rd party software? The reasonable thinking is that we can test EVERYTHING in every possible scenario. Or I am wrong? That's the idea of a test... as far as I know (as software developer).

any bug, stability or perfomance issue you noticed in Insider Preview Builds should be reported in the Feedback Hub app, and there is no security guarantee in this builds because are in constant change and even with untested/unstable changes that could impact stability, performance and security.

 

they don't block 3rd party software, just that some 3rd party software use specific kernel functions/calls (for example drivers or security apps) and due these 3rd party software is not being developed at the same time with the Insider Preview Builds changes, then for obvious reasons there could be incompatibilities.

 

and yes you can test everything you want, but don't expect to have a 100% stability with apps that depend of kernel functions/calls and don't expect them to works at 100% with each Insider Preview Release, for obvious reasons.

They're blocked, since the message in the services panel says so when you try to start manually (in my case one of the nod32 services when installed) that is blocked. That's not an issue with kernel. It's blocking communication within modules of the AV's and in some cases, those blocks are so bad for a nice GSOD. You think all AV vendors use the same approach when scanning for viruses? If so, you're wrong. And you need to do a lot of changes in the kernel in order to prevent most all AV's from running. The easy way is to block them.

And in the previous months the feedback hub was asking for your AV choice... what do you think they did with al the answers?

that is different thing, few time ago Microsoft introduced a new change in kernel related with security, and the AVs should match these changes to work properly in Windows 10, that included a specific registry key that the compatible AVs have to introduce in registry to confirm that they have proper compatibility with the new kernel changes, otherwise for obvious reason will not work, or will cause GSOD/BSOD depending of the calls.

 

in short words if you are using a third party AV or Security software that is not fully compatible with a BETA OS, don't use it! except that you want to experiency some random GSOD/BSODs due compatibility issues or another issues, and don't blame to others for that, because you were already warned about it (since 2014) as Insider.

 

and about FeebackHub asking for you AV choice, and what they did with the answers ? whats the matter with that ? they can do anything with their polls about different software to have an idea what the users use most.

Still not looking right at the issue. If there's an AV that's working fine and it's not so widespread as the most common ones, then it will work fine. That's not a kernel issue. It's a policy. I don't put the blame in others, I'm stating what's going on with the roadmap from MS. As I said, Comodo CIS works fine, fully funtional. Why? That's based on the surveys answers. Stop telling me your only argument is only that the insiders builds are BETA OS and I was warned since 2014.

Do you know how the kernel works? Do you know how the calls are made? Do you know low level API's? Do you write code using DDK? Do you develope your own API's? I do.

And as I said, I knew the risks, and always I've found a solution. But MS now is narrowing those approaches because they want to impose a flawed security solution for the sake of who knows. Now they're giving insiders a hard time not only with those blunders. There's the SNMP consuming resources without reason and the '...' menus in UWP that don't work as intended and the fatal flaw with the restoration, the notifications blunder is there to mention too. And I can write more than that but I know you'll say it's a BETA OS.

And the change in the security policy for AV was submitted to AV vendors before the build was released and NO problem arised. This is a different matter. And as far as I know, resetting skip ahead builds and focusing in polish (¿?) the apps and enviroment is the path for a new RTM, so, everyone will be screwed with this change. They don't mind all the claims about the AVs failing.

Yes, yes, BETA OS.
