New Windows 10 build brings Ink improvements, container support

Developers can now run Hyper-V Containers easily with the latest beta

Microsoft has released a new beta build of Windows 10 aimed at enhancing various aspects of the operating system, including support for the LastPass extension in the Edge browser, as the company hurtles toward releasing a major update in the coming months.

Build 14361, released Wednesday, includes updated icons, the LastPass password manager extension for Microsoft Edge, and support for running Docker containers natively on Windows. Windows Ink, Microsoft's tools for working with pen input on a touchscreen Windows 10 device, also received several improvements.

The build is another one on the road to what Microsoft is calling the Windows 10 Anniversary Update -- a major release of its latest operating system that packs in a slew of new features.

One of the new features in this latest update is support for extensions in Microsoft Edge, the new Web browser that shipped with Windows 10. The new build brings the LastPass extension to Microsoft Edge, which lets users of the popular password management service have easy access to their saved passwords.

It joins a variety of other installable extensions, which include the popular Reddit Enhancement Suite and a button that lets people save content to Pinterest.

Developers get a major treat with this release, which brings support for Hyper-V Containers to Windows 10. People can set up a container -- basically a simplified operating system environment for use with a particular application -- that runs the Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 Nano Server on their PC. They can test the application locally and then easily send it off to a production environment.

Unfortunately, a bug in how the new build handles French means that Insiders who have it set as their base language won't get access to it. Large amounts of interface text don't get rendered in French, and instead fall back to English. That's par for the course for the Windows release Fast ring, which includes builds that can feature major bugs affecting how people are able to use their devices.

Other bugs include an issue with Edge that prevents files from automatically downloading when users click a link and a problem that crashes the Settings app whenever users navigate to the Privacy tab.
