First Windows 11 Beta Released After The Build
Microsoft released a new update in the Windows 11 Beta Channel. The optional update KB5026440 mainly brings bug fixes, but also an innovation in connection with OneDrive subscriptions.
The two builds 22621.1825 and 22631.1825 are now starting in the Windows 11 Insider program. This dichotomy has been in place for a long time, with new functions only being automatically activated for users of the higher build. With update KB5026440, however, both development strands will receive identical updates this time.
Lots of bug fixes, a few improvements
KB5026440 launches multiple bug fixes including Server Message Block (SMB), a memory leak, Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS), NTFS, an audio issue, and more. Furthermore, the display of the OneDrive capacity in the settings has been adjusted. Innovations that Microsoft announced at this year’s Build developer conference cannot yet be seen in this test channel.
Join the Insider channel at any time
Since this is only an optional update for the Insider program, the information is not available in the Knowledge Base. Instead, there is an extensive changelog in the Windows blog. In addition to bug fixes, a handful of improvements are also listed. We translated the changes and added them to the end of the post. If you haven’t joined the beta tests for Windows 11 yet, you can join at any time. This is primarily worthwhile if you get options that have already been tested via the beta or release preview channel so that you can use them before everyone else.
