Windows 10 build 18362.10005 (19H2) releases with improvements

Windows 10 19H2 update gets new preview update with minor changes, including support to allow third-party assistants to work above the Lock screen.

Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 18362.10005 for testers with devices enrolled in the Slow ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the second preview releasing to testers after the company resumed the 19H2 development, and it’s a minor update availble through Windows Update that only includes some small changes.

Windows 10 build 18362.10005, according to the software giant, includes the latest fixes available with July 2019 Patch Tuesday update available for the May 2019 Update. In addition, this flight includes fixes for Windows containers, Windows Ink for manufacturers implementations, improvements for Mobile Device Management (MDM), and it introduces the ability for third-party assistants (such as Amazon Alexa) to work above the Lock screen.

Windows 10 build 18362.10005 changes

Here are all the features and changes coming to the next version of Windows 10:

  • A change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.
  • Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios This update includes five fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation.
  • A fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS.
  • Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from in-tune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users.

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18362.10005 at the Windows Blog.
