Microsoft is very dedicated to its work and even if we don’t hear any news for a while, it doesn’t mean that the company is taking a break. Currently, the developers are working hard on new Windows 10 builds for members of the Windows Insider Program and the latest Build 14951 is now available in Fast Ring. A welcome change is related to the Camera app, which will capture Live Images whenever the shot will feature motion.
Users will notice that the Camera app will start up faster and that they will take a picture by using the space bar. Also, they will easily set or change a photo timer, look at the most recent shot or use a slider to adjust the zoom level. The Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 3, and Surface 3 users who will want to capture living images (which will be created automatically whenever the shots will feature motion) will enable this feature in the Camera app’s settings window.
The version of Linux was also updated and it will be installed when Windows users will enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Last month, the company has promised to bring a new Ubuntu version, and it kept its promise. Canonical’s Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) is now available for users who have set up the Windows Subsystem for Linux and will execute the command do-release-upgrade in the Bash on Ubuntu.
Microsoft has updated Windows Ink, as well, allowing users to change color and the width from the pen dropdown menu, which will disappear when they start drawing. Another addition is a Windows Ink protractor tool called Stencils, which “combines functions of both protractor and compass into one – now you can draw an arc or a complete circle of an arbitrary size with little effort. A familiar two-finger pinch gesture resizes the protractor to the desired size and a degree readout follows your pen, mouse, or finger as you draw along the side of the protractor displaying arc degrees.”
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14951 also includes bug fixes, but it’s not exempt from issues, such as not being able to sign back into Feedback Hub, Groove or MSN when automatically/manually signing out.
