WINDOWS 10 INSIDER PREVIEW BUILD 17046

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 22:06:45 +0000

Win 10 Insider build 17046 is now released to Insiders on the Fast Ring. Microsoft blog gives details: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/11/22/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17046-pc/#EqPSwc84E121gLW5.97

  • Fixed a community reported issue where display colors became distorted after upgrading on some TV’s and monitors that incorrectly advertised support for 10/12 bit wire formats.
  • Fixed an issue from the previous flight that could cause heavily-threaded DirectX 12 apps to crash on launch after the first launch.

In response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of its Intel® Management Engine (ME), Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Intel® Server Platform Services (SPS) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience.

As a result, Intel has identified several security vulnerabilities that could potentially place impacted platforms at risk. Systems using ME Firmware versions 11.0/11.5/11.6/11.7/11.10/11.20, SPS Firmware version 4.0, and TXE version 3.0 are impacted.

New Features
 Added support for OpenGL 4.61

as when entering or leaving full-screen mode (typically by pressing Alt+tab).
Applications that do not properly respond to the VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR return
code may not function properly when these events occur. See the WSI Swapchain
section of the Vulkan specification.
 Added support for the DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL)

and the DirectX Shader Compiler.
