CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS
● We have started rolling out Chat from Microsoft Teams to Insiders in the Dev Channel. Not everyone will see it right away.
The hidden icons flyout on the lower right of the Taskbar has been updated to match the new visuals of Windows 11. (Please note – it may not look right after updating to this build – toggling between two themes will correct the issue.)
● The hidden icons flyout on the lower right of the Taskbar has been updated to match the new visuals of Windows 11. (Please note – it may not look right after updating to this build – toggling between two themes will correct the issue.)
● We added the ability to quickly access Focus assist settings directly from Notification Center.
● When a background activity from an app requires attention, the app will flash on the Taskbar to get your attention. In Windows 11, we have updated this design so that it still grabs your attention but with a calming treatment that minimizes the impact of unwarranted distractions. The subtle flashing eventually stops, and you will see a slightly red backplate and red pill under the app icon continuing to note a background activity needs your attention. Let us know what you think!
● The touch keyboard icon in the Taskbar has been adjusted to be more consistent with the size of the other icons in the corner of the Taskbar.
● The Taskbar calendar flyout will now fully collapse down when clicking the chevron in the top corner to give you more room for notifications.
● In the latest Microsoft Store update rolling out to Insiders, we made navigation in our new Microsoft Store feel fast and fun. When you select an app or movie you’re interested in, you might notice some animations that help you keep track of what you’re browsing. Give it a try, we hope you like it as much as we do.

FIXES:
● Taskbar:
● We fixed the issue that was causing Explorer.exe to crash when the date and time button on the Taskbar is clicked to access new notifications with Focus Assist turned off.
● Added the missing settings icons for the context menu entries when right clicking network, volume, and battery in the Taskbar.
● Fixed an issue that was making the clock in the Taskbar get stuck and out of sync.
● Addressed an explorer.exe crash that could happen after resuming from standby, related to the volume icon in the Taskbar.
● Addressed an issue where the progress bar below app icons in the Taskbar was not displaying in some cases.
● Clicking on the Taskbar when either Start or Search is open will now make them dismiss.
● If you tap Taskbar icons using touch you should now see the same icon animation that was visible when using the mouse.
● The lunar calendar (when enabled) text should no longer overlap the numbers in the Taskbar calendar flyout.
● The calendar flyout should now show the correct month when in a collapsed state.
● The date at the top of the calendar flyout should now follow your preferred format and not the format matching your display language.
● If the Start menu is open, when hovering over Task View the window will now appear above Start menu instead of behind it.
● Right-clicking Task View will now make the preview window dismiss so you can actually use the context menu.
● Fixed an issue where if you click on a snap group in the Taskbar, it might not bring up all the app windows after docking and undocking.
● The icons used for the On / Off indicators in the Taskbar for the Pinyin IME are now a consistent size.
● Signing out and back in when battery saver is running should no longer result in Taskbar becoming transparent.
● Mitigated an issue making the network icon sometimes unexpectedly not show in the Taskbar.
● The Taskbar previews will no longer draw offscreen after upgrading to this build.

  1. I'll be honest, design wise i dont really like this "all-rounded" design. but other than that its going so great.
    I hope in future they give us an option for turning rounded corners off
