Microsoft is currently working on resolving the bug which has prevented the company from rolling out Windows 10 Spring Creators update to the general public. Today the company is releasing a new Windows 10 Build 17650 from the Redstone 5 development branch to the Skip Ahead Insiders.

The latest build does not come with many new features except for Windows Defender Application. Windows Defender Security Center now gets a Fluent Design refresh in the latest preview build. The company has also adjusted the spacing and padding around the application.

The size of the categories on the main page has also received improvements with more room provided for extra info. The title bar of the application has also been modified so that the app uses the accent color. This needs to be enabled in Color Settings – with Sets enable, the color can be seen in the WDSC tab.

Another new improvement added to the Windows Defender Firewall is it now supports Windows Subsystem for Linux processes. You will now be able to add specific rules for Windows Subsystem process in Windows Defender Firewall.

Support for notifications for the Windows Subsystem has also been added to the processes. Apart from this, there has been no new feature which has been added in the latest Windows 10 Build 17650.

The Redstone 5 is still under development and we expect Microsoft to add more new features before it is officially rolled out to all Windows 10 users this fall. “Sets” is the only feature which has been currently added to Redstone 5 users and we expect more features to be added.

We expect to know about the new features for Redstone 5 in the company’s Build 2018 developer conference next month. As reported above the latest Windows 10 Preview Build 17650 is available for Insiders who have enrolled in the Skip Ahead Ring. You can download the latest build by going to Settings>Update & Security>Windows Update>Check for Update.
