Microsoft has just released a new Windows 10 preview build to insiders in the Fast ring as the company continues work on the next major OS feature update due in the spring of 2019.

Windows 10 build 18267 introduces support for Vietnamese Telex and Number-key based (VNI) keyboards, making it possible to type in Vietnamese.

The firm says this has been one of the top feature requests in terms of input, and it is thus expected to go live for production devices with the release of the stable update next year.

Additionally, the touch keyboard has been updated with new symbols, and this comes in handy particularly to those running Windows 10 on their tablets or 2-in-1s and relying on touch input instead of a hardware keyboard.

There are several accessibility improvements, like Narrator working better with Chrome, BRLTTY version 5.6 support, and UI Automation framework now providing translating IAccessible2 information from Chrome, as well as an improved search feature with a new mode called Enhanced.

“To improve our search indexing, we created a new feature that enables Windows to search all your folders and drives, instead of limiting search to your documents, pictures, videos, and desktop by default,” Microsoft explains in the official release notes of this build.

Known issues in this build

There are lots of general changes and fixes, including for a BSOD that some users experienced in the previous builds.

Like every other release, Windows 10 build 18267 comes with known issues too, including a Task Manager bug.

“If you change Task Manager settings, the next time Task Manager is opened it will revert to default,” Microsoft explains.

If you are a Windows insider enrolled in the Fast ring, you can download the new build from Windows Update right now. The 19H1 update is projected to be finalized in March ahead of a public launch in April.
