Redstone 3: Microsoft is next to Windows

Redstone 3: Microsoft is next to Windows

While many Windows 10 users still on the Creators update wait Microsoft screwed by the next major update to the operating system. No wonder, after all, Microsoft plans to publish the update for Windows 10, which is released under the working title "Redstone 3", in 2017. Microsoft expert Brad Sams limits the release date of the package to October or November 2017. Detailed information on the fourth Windows 10 update, such as the name, can only be expected at the developer conference BUILD in May 2017. But Windows fans do not have to turn thumbs, on the contrary: Microsoft has already released new pre-versions, so-called "builds" of Redstone 3 for Windows insiders .

Power saving: More function announced
Already during the development of the Creators update, Microsoft had announced an energy saving technology in order to spare batteries of Notebooks & Co. better. Now the group is laying down and revealing further details about the new electricity technology for the next Redstone update. The innovation under the working title "Power Throttling" promises a more energy-efficient execution of background programs and apps. If Windows 10 detects that they have nothing to do, the operating system engages and brakes the targeted. Microsoft's Windows Insider is asking for help. Despite the early stage of development, the new technology is already reducing power consumption by as much as 11 percent, according to Microsoft .

The manufacturer does not only rely on optimizations on its own system, but also builds on a special power storage technology from Intel processors. With Intel's so-called "speed shift" technology, the processor (CPU) adapts its voltage very quickly to the respective situation. Accordingly, the CPU recognizes very quickly, when just less is to be done and thus lowers the energy consumption. Consequently, this only works with Intel CPUs from the sixth generation (Skylake, 2015). However, Microsoft has promised to support further processor generations in the future.

Redstone 3: Build 16176
With Build 16176, Windows testers in the Fast Ring now have access to the second pre-release version of the next update. Here changes only a little. The only noteworthy innovation is to delight hobbyists: With the version, Microsoft improves with the Linux system introduced with the Anniversary Update . Specifically, serial ports can now be addressed directly, which simplifies the operation of the Rasperry Pi via the Ubuntu bash in Windows 10. Microsoft reveals more details in its developer blog . In addition, Build 16176 still provides some minor improvements and bug fixes. For example, in the announcement, Microsoft reports that the read-only mode works again, A seven-second press of the on / off button for newer devices starts the error check and the system displays appointments again when the calendar is opened in the tasklist. But Microsoft also mentions some errors in the version: for example, automatically converted store apps (Centennial apps) cause a system crash.

New features come later
Already the first pre-release ( Build 16170 ) offered little new. The only visible change was the freshly designed share arrow in Windows Explorer. The procedure is not untypical: Already with the previous updates the developers started mainly with optimizations at the program code. Only when work on the foundation is complete, Windows insiders are given access to the new features for Windows 10. How long this takes is open. However, a few of these are already known. For example, Microsoft is working to refresh the look and feel of Windows.

Project Neon: New design for Windows 10
Windowscentral.com has learned that Microsoft employees are working on a new design for Windows 10 under the code name Project Neon - for a year! Thus, the new appearance is based on the current simple look, but with animations and transitions for a more fluid and stylistically appealing user experience. What Microsoft introduces under the new design language, first shots show. The portal MSPoweruser has managed to view and print designs of the fresh design.

Connect AR and desktop
Internally, Project Neon probably also runs under the label "Metro 2.0" - in line with the Metro design, which provided the basis for the Windows Phone and the trend to more straightforward, clinically cleared symbolic optics. According to the report, the design should create a link between Augmented Reality (AR) and the classic desktop environment. The user interface should work across multiple devices and implement elements from the monitor via Augmented Reality eyewear to the real world. Because Microsoft maintains the basic style of the current theme, developers do not have to customize their apps. However, Microsoft would like to tighten up the guidelines for the graphical display of third-party apps. Thus one wants to unify the optics across all applications.

My People: Instant contact
Windows 10 will help you to get in touch with your friends and colleagues faster and easier. To do this, the operating system displays your favorite contacts in the taskliste. From there, two clicks are enough to exchange files and messages with them. Skype or the e-mail program to open, is not necessary. Originally called My-People-function Creators should debut update, but it was not quite satisfied with the implementation at Microsoft and has the function for the next update shifted so on Redstone 3
