Microsoft is testing new Windows 11 High Priority Notifications feature
A new version of Windows 11 is available to Insiders in the Release Preview and Beta channels. Microsoft just released Windows 11 Build 22000.588, which includes just one new feature and a long list of fixes. Starting with this release, the operating system will display up to three high-priority notifications.
The release has only one new feature, which Microsoft explains in a blog post:
- New! We displayed up to three high priority toast notifications simultaneously. This feature is intended for apps that send call, reminder, or alarm notifications using Windows notifications in the operating system. Therefore, up to four toast notifications can appear simultaneously – three high priority notifications and one normal priority notification.
A long list of fixes also comes with the update:
- We fixed an issue that disabled automatic startup of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps after OS upgrade.
- We fixed an issue that caused SystemSettings.exe not to work.
- We fixed an issue that affects searchindexer.exe and prevents Microsoft Outlook Offline Search from returning recent emails.
- We fixed an issue that increased Windows startup time. This issue occurs because a UI thread in a networking API becomes unresponsive when a 5G wireless wide area network (WWAN) device is slow to wake up.
- We fixed a memory leak in the wmipicmp.dll module that caused numerous false alarms in the System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) data center monitoring system.
- We fixed an issue that incorrectly returned execution policy settings from the registry.
- We fixed an issue where modern browsers failed to correctly render HTML generated by gpresult/h.
- We fixed an issue that caused an “Access Denied” exception for a file during a PowerShell test for AppLocker.
- We fixed an issue that caused the RDS (Remote Desktop Service) server to become unstable when the number of connected users exceeds 100. This prevents you from accessing applications published using RDS on Windows Server 2019.
- We fixed an issue that returned an error message when browsing a domain or Organizational Unit (OU). This issue occurs due to improper memory reset.
- We fixed an issue that caused the Group Policy Management Console to not work after it was closed. The system logs Application Error Event ID 1000 and error 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION); the faulty module is GPOAdmin.dll.
- We fixed an issue that could cause the Group Policy service to stop processing telemetry information for Group Policy registry preferences.
- We fixed a stop error (0xD1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) in the DirectX kernel component.
- We fixed an issue that could prevent Kerberos.dll from working in the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS). This occurs when LSASS processes concurrent User-to-User (U2U) Service for User (S4U) requests for the same client user.
- We fixed an issue affecting the Key Distribution Center (KDC) proxy. The KDC proxy cannot correctly obtain Kerberos tickets to connect to Key Trust Windows Hello for Business.
- We’ve added support for Microsoft Account Transfer (MSA) scenarios in Azure Active Directory (AAD) Web Account Manager (WAM).
- We fixed an issue that logged Event ID 37 during certain password change scenarios, including Failover Cluster Name Object (CNO) or virtual machine object (VCO).
- We fixed an issue that prevented the User Account Control (UAC) dialog from correctly displaying the application that is requesting elevated privileges.
- We fixed an issue that could cause a Microsoft OneDrive file to lose focus after renaming it and pressing Enter.
- We returned the corresponding settings page when you search for the word widgets.
- We fixed an issue that prevented event 4739 from showing new values for some attributes after a policy change.
- We fixed an issue that caused the Move-ADObject command to fail when moving computer accounts between domains. The error message is “Multiple values were specified for an attribute that can only have one value”.
- We fixed an issue that prevented you from accessing Server Message Block (SMB) shares using an IP address when SMB hardening is enabled.
- We fixed an issue that caused Stop Error 0x1E in SMB Server (srv2.sys).
- We fixed an issue that caused incompatibility between NetBIOS and Active Directory DNS domain names when you create a cluster.
