Microsoft today released its first Windows 10 Build 20150 for insider testers developing channels, with the latest version of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20150. This release is part of a RS_PRERELEASE branch that brings three new features and some bug fixes to Windows System for Linux. We can find the full change log below:
What’s new in Windows 10 Build 20150:
Three new Windows System for Linux (WSL) features are GPU computing, WSL installation, and WSL updates.
This build includes three exciting wSL features.
The first is GPU computing: allows you to leverage your Linux binaries so that you can do more machine learning development and data science workflows directly in WSL.
Second, a new command has been added to the new version. ‘wsl – install’ allows you to install the WSL with a command.
Finally, the new version adds ‘wsl -update’, making it easy to manage the Linux kernel version used in the WSL 2 release.
In addition, the Bing Maps team announced that it has begun to roll out new TomTom basic map data to Bing Maps and Microsoft First., as well as Microsoft First.. As part of this process, the Windows team is also slowly updating the Windows Insiders map app in the Fast Ring to work with TomTom’s new map data.
