It’s Good Friday today, but folks at Microsoft pulled out two new Redstone 3 build for Fast ring Insiders. After last week’s one and along with build 15204 for Mobile devices, Windows Update is now delivering build 16176 for PC and tablets enrolled. And this time there’s a new feature!

Indeed, Windows Subsystem for Linux gains serial device support, so with buildĀ 16176 Windows COM ports can now be accessed directly from a WSL process.

This build also brings a couple of other changes and bugfixes, you can find the full list of them from Dona Sarkar’s post on Windows Blogs.

Of course, don’t expect this build to be stable, so if you wanna learn more about Known Issues that will come along build 16176, head over Dona Sarkar’s post on Windows Blogs

And for those who are celebrating, Windows Latest’s staff wishes you a happy Easter.
