Microsoft starts testing a version of Windows 10 it won’t release until 2020

Feb 15, 2019 - 9:26 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft has started testing an update to Windows 10 that it plans to release in 2020. It’s unusual for the company to test updates so far in advance, as Microsoft typically releases two updates per year and tests them with members of the public. Microsoft has not yet started testing its next 2019 update, codenamed 19H2, but Microsoft’s Windows Insider chief, Dona Sarkar, says additional testing is required for this new 2020 update.

Due in the first half of 2020, and codenamed 20H1, Sarkar says “some things we are working on in 20H1 require a longer lead time.” Microsoft has not yet officially unveiled features for this update, but the company has released the first early beta build of it to testers today. Windows 10 build 18836 has been released to testers who opt into the Skip Ahead ring for future versions of Windows, and Microsoft will start testing its 19H2 update later this spring.

Microsoft is currently in the process of finalizing its next major Windows 10 update, due in April. It’s currently codenamed 19H1, and the software maker is expected to ship a final version of it to testers in March before making it more broadly available to existing machines. This spring 2019 update will include a new light theme, Kaomoji support, a separation of Cortana from Windows search, and a new built-in Office app.

Instagram Tests Direct Messages on the Web

Feb 13, 2019 - 5:14 PM - by Reverend
Instagram is still a mobile-focused product; it's been slow to add much functionality to Instagram.com, beyond allowing people to view photos and stories. But it's reportedly now testing web-based direct messaging.

As TechCrunch reports, Jane Manchun Wong—who regularly digs into apps to find upcoming changes—discovered that Instagram is playing around with messaging on the mobile web and the desktop.

It's not available to users at this point; Instagram employees are still testing it internally, TechCrunch says. A few hours after her initial tweets, meanwhile, Wong said Instagram had "remotely disabled access to Direct on Web prototype."

The move isn't too much of a surprise. In fact, you might question why it took this long. Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been available on the web since 2015, while Facebook chat started on the web before moving to mobile and then the standalone Facebook Messenger app. In 2017, there were rumors that Instagram was testing a standalone Direct messing app, but that never came to fruition.

Facebook is also thinking about merging its messaging platforms—Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram—to better compete with rivals.

Right now, the web version of Instagram does not support uploading photos or stories, and Instagram has said that it has "no plans to let users upload photos or stories from the desktop," The Verge reports.

Microsoft to end IE10 support years early, tells enterprises to upgrade to IE11

Feb 01, 2019 - 7:04 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft this week told the remaining users of Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) that it would cut off support years earlier than promised, saying it would end security updates for the browser in January 2020.

IE11 will replace IE10 on systems running Windows Server 2012.

"Starting in the spring of 2019, commercial customers running Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard can begin using IE11 in their test environments or pilot rings," wrote Suchithra Gopinath, a Microsoft program manager, in a Jan. 28 post to a company blog. "You will have until January 2020 to complete the transition from IE10 to IE11. After this, we will not release any security or non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content changes for IE10."

IE10 was supposed to receive security updates until Oct. 10, 2023, the retirement date for Windows Server 2012. That support had been promised after Microsoft forced customers to upgrade to the latest version of IE for their operating system, an order that meant most had to adopt IE11 or migrate to a rival browser. The mandate ended IE8's support four years before its time and IE10's seven years early on OSes including Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The only non-embedded operating system allowed to run IE10 while still receiving updates was Windows Server 2012. Gopinath's announcement effectively culled three more years from IE10's once-pledged support on Windows Server 2012.

She cited "(a) shift to a faster, more secure browsing experience" as the reason for the abandon-IE10 decision and added that "it will also allow you to reduce the number of Internet Explorer versions you support in your environment."

The latter was... [Read More]

Apple delays update for FaceTime eavesdropping bug

Feb 01, 2019 - 6:51 PM - by Reverend
Apple said a fix for a FaceTime bug that let users eavesdrop on others won't be available until next week.

The FaceTime flaw allowed people who started a call to hear live audio on the recipient's phone, even if the person hadn't accepted the call. In some cases, the caller could even see through the recipient's front-facing camera, if they pressed the volume button to dismiss the call. The bug was triggered when you added someone to a group FaceTime call.

On Monday, Apple (AAPL) said it had identified a fix for the problem and would release it in a software update this week. But on Friday, an Apple spokesperson said the software update wouldn't roll out until next week. It's unclear why the fix has been delayed.

"We sincerely apologize to our customers who were affected and all who were concerned about this security issue," the Apple spokesperson said on Friday.

Apple also thanked the family responsible for reporting the bug. Fourteen-year old Grant Thompson discovered the glitch when he tried to FaceTime with his friends about nine days before Apple publicly confirmed the issue.

The bug worked on iPhones and iPads with iOS 12.1, and Apple PCs running macOS Mojave, which have the recently added Group FaceTime feature.

His mother, Michele, told CNN Business she reported the issue to Apple in multiple ways, from email and phone calls to sending the company a fax, but it failed to respond. Ultimately, Apple disabled the Group FaceTime feature after the issue was flagged by tech blog 9to5Mac and users started to post videos of the bug in action on social media.

"We are committed to improving the process by which we receive and escalate these reports, in order to get them to the right people as fast as possible," the Apple spokesperson said.

The spokesperson added the engineering team began working on a fix as soon as they became... [Read More]
