Microsoft has made the next upcoming version of Windows 10 available via its Insider Preview program. It is called 1903, or the May 2019 Update. An SDK for this build is also now ready to download.

Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 10. However, it is only open to those who have enrolled in the Insider Preview program as yet. It is called the May 2019 Update, version 1903, or build 18362 at this point. Those who run it may be able to enjoy some new Windows features such as Light Theme.

However, this build may also contain some bugs. For example, Microsoft has warned that 1903 may negatively affect a guest-client or server virtual machine that uses an input–output memory management unit (IOMMU). In practice, this may break virtualization-based security (VBS) or Windows Credential Guard for these machines.

Microsoft has also posted a link to download an SDK (10.0. 18362) for the May 2019 Update. This may benefit those who work on or with Windows Subsystem for Linux or Windows UI Library. This kit can be accessed now via the Release Preview Ring of the Insiders program.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
