Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18277 – Windows Experience Blog

Happy Diwali for the Indian Windows Insiders who are celebrating! Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18277 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.
If you are looking for a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring – head on over to Flight Hub. You can also check out the rest of our documentation here including a complete list of new features and updates that have gone out as part of Insider flights for the current development cycle (which currently is 19H1).

Evolving Focus assist
Starting with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, we embarked on a journey to help reduce the number of distractions you encounter when you’re trying to get in the zone. With today’s build, we’re taking this to the next level: We’ve added a new focus assist option so that when you’re doing *anything* full screen we can automatically turn on focus assist.

Watching a movie? Poring over some excel tables? Studying? Focus assist is here for you, and will keep your notifications quiet until you exit full screen mode.
Like our other focus assist settings, this can be found under Settings > System > Focus Assist. Make sure you take a moment to customize your priority list to ensure any notifications you want to break through the rule will appear! If you’d like to turn off the warning notification that’s shown in Action Center after entering focus assist, you can do so by clicking the rule in Focus Assist Settings which prompted the notification.
Improving your Action Center experience
One of the top requests we’ve heard from you is that you’d prefer the brightness Quick action to be a slider instead of a button, and with today’s build we’re making it happen!

But wait, there’s more!
You can now easily customize your Quick actions right from the Action Center itself, rather than having to go into Settings. That means not only can you re-arrange in the moment, but you can also add any Quick action you need on the fly, without needing for it to always take up space.

We’d love for you to try it out and share feedback!
Preparing for Emoji 12
With today’s build, Insiders will get a first look at the emoji we’ve designed so far in preparation for the Emoji 12 release! These emoji are available for use via the emoji panel (WIN + .) and the touch keyboard.

Note: The complete list of emoji for the Emoji 12 release is still in Beta, so Insiders may notice a few changes over the coming flights as the emoji are finalized. We have a bit more work to do, including adding search keywords for the new emoji, and adding a few emoji that aren’t finished yet.
High DPI Improvements
As many of you know, we’ve been working over the past few years to improve the High DPI story for Win32 (desktop) apps on Windows. As part of this, some of you may recall getting a toast about fixing your apps that led you to this setting we added with Build 17063:

In 19H1, we’re enabling this setting by default, to help automatically address some of your scaling feedback, and reduce the number of times you see that “Fix blurry apps” notification.
We’d love your feedback! Notice that some of your apps seem blurry after docking/undocking, or other mixed DPI scenarios? You can let us know by reporting it here!
If you’re interested to learn whether or not an app is DPI aware you can find out using this feature we rolled out to Task Manager a few flights ago.
Windows Security gets an additional Windows Defender Application Guard setting
Insiders will notice that Isolated browsing has an additional toggle that lets users manage access to their camera and microphone while browsing using Application Guard for Microsoft Edge. If this is managed by enterprise admins, users can check how this setting is configured. For this to be turned on in Application Guard for Microsoft Edge, the camera and microphone setting must already be turned on for the device in Settings > Privacy > Microphone & Settings > Privacy > Camera.

Refreshing the Japanese IME
We’ve already made a few announcements about how we plan to improve your typing experiences in Windows with this release, and we’re excited to add one more to the list today! To provide increased security and reliability, we’re updating the Japanese IME by redesigning how it works with applications. Not only that, but we’ve updated the IME candidate window interface to be cleaner and more polished:

You’ll notice that each text prediction candidate now has an index so you can quickly select it, just like the conversion candidates! We’re looking forward to you trying it out, and that’s not all! As part of this work, all of your familiar Japanese IME settings have now been fully integrated into Settings. If you’d like to check them out, fastest way there is to right-click the IME mode indicator in the taskbar and select Settings, although you can also get there from the Language Settings page.

Some Insiders have had this change for a few flights now, so we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all of your great feedback so far! Please don’t hesitate to continue sharing thoughts with us about typing in Windows – our ears are open and we’d love to hear from you.

Recently, we announced an exciting preview in the US that allows you to call up Cortana on Amazon Alexa Echo devices – and Alexa on your Windows 10 PC. You can, for example, enlist Cortana through an Amazon Alexa Echo device to tell you your next meeting or have Alexa order groceries through your Windows 10 PC. Now, we’d like to take the experience even further with the help of Windows Insiders like you. Just start by completing this short survey.
If you haven’t already tried it out, simply click the microphone icon in Windows Search on your Windows 10 PC and say ‘’Hey Cortana, open Alexa’. Or, on your Amazon Echo device, say “Alexa, open Cortana” on Echo devices. (Then let us know what you think in the Feedback Hub.) For more, see our AI blog.

Bleedingbit vulnerabilities put Wi-Fi access points at risk

Security researchers disclosed two vulnerabilities in Bluetooth chips that put wireless access points, medical devices and more at risk of attack.

Researchers at Armis, an enterprise IoT security company based in Palo Alto, Calif., discovered two vulnerabilities in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chips manufactured by Texas Instruments and have branded the flaws as Bleedingbit. Armis said the chips have been embedded in a variety of devices — most prominently Wi-Fi access points from Cisco, Cisco Meraki and Aruba Networks.

“The Bleedingbit vulnerabilities endanger enterprises using vulnerable access points in their networks. Beyond access points, the health sector is potentially affected by these vulnerabilities, as the affected BLE chips are used in many medical devices, such as insulin pumps and pacemakers,” Armis researchers wrote in a blog post. “Even private users might be affected by the vulnerabilities if they use an IoT device which embeds one of the vulnerable chips. Armis is still in the midst of evaluating the full effects of Bleedingbit on devices serving multiple sectors.”

One of the Bleedingbit flaws (CVE-2018-16986) allows an attacker to run malicious code on a vulnerable device by sending a series of packets, which triggers an overflow — or bleed — of memory. The second flaw (CVE-2018-7080), which is specific to the Aruba 300 Series access points, can allow an attacker to load a custom version of the device firmware.

Shay Nahari, head of Red-Team services at CyberArk, based in Newton, Mass., noted that even though the Bleedingbit vulnerabilities are considered remote, “they still require physical proximity to be exploited in order to communicate with the Bluetooth chip on the device.”

“These flaws are dangerous due to the fact that can be used by attackers to gain initial access into corporate environments and as a means of stealthy persistence once access is gained,” Nahari wrote via email. “At the moment, they are extremely difficult to detect and exterminate without specific knowledge of the attack.”

Bluetooth would need to be turned on in the target device. And Ben Seri, vice president of research at Armis, said there can be many reasons why an organization would have Bluetooth enabled.

“BLE is used for various innovative applications in access points: Retails use them to track clients in shopping malls and to supply indoor navigation systems; hospitals use them for tracking valuable assets — by attaching BLE beacons to medical equipment and tracking their location from the access points; and it can be used to collect data on the various IoT devices in the vicinity of the access point, as well,” Seri wrote via email. “Some vendors also use BLE to enable cable-free setup process of the access point itself — which comes in handy when the AP is hooked up to the ceiling.”

Armis claimed in its analysis that the Bleedingbit vulnerabilities are “contagious by their nature, allowing the attack to spread to any device in the vicinity of the initial breach.”

“Attacks such as Bleedingbit, which target these devices, can effectively bypass network segmentation,” Armis wrote. “Once attackers control the network devices, they gain simultaneous access to all network segments and can even eliminate segmentation altogether, proving enterprises cannot depend on network segmentation alone.”

However, Travis Biehn, technical strategist and research lead at Synopsys, based in Mountain View, Calif., said he was unsure how difficult it would be for an attacker to get the kind of access described by Armis.

“I’m concerned about the technical details about how you’d pivot from the BLE microcontroller to the microcontroller controlling the executive router functions. This will be arbitrary for each affected device,” Biehn wrote via email. “Intrinsically, the TI chips seem to have vulnerabilities that give attackers the ability to compromise their runtime on those TI chips. An attacker needs to identify another vulnerability between the TI chip and the main access point microcontroller to achieve the level of access described by these security researchers.”

Seri said Texas Instruments has patched its software development kit against Bleedingbit, and “manufacturers that use the affected chips should upgrade their firmwares to the latest SDK.” Additionally, Cisco, Meraki and Aruba have released patches, as well.

Nahari said, despite these patches, the real danger may be with other embedded devices.

“It is important to note that while the researchers focused on these access points, the underlying issue actually lies in the BLE chip, which may be installed in other embedded devices, as well,” Nahari said. “Mitigating the risk by patching is extremely difficult, since, in many cases, there are no agents installed on these devices and the routers often sit at demilitarized zone or in segmented networks, making it a burden to patch.”

ID@Xbox Delivers the Weird Games I Love – Xbox Wire

A thousand games have launched through the ID@Xbox program – hopefully, you’ve picked that up by now. My name’s Glenn and I’ve been doing marketing for the ID@Xbox program almost from day one, so I’ve been around for the launch of all but a couple of these. (And I have the grey hair to prove it. Seriously, I had no grey hair before I started working on ID.)

Other than my impeccable grammar and stunning fashion sense, one thing I pride myself in is playing (nearly) all the ID@Xbox games. So, when we got to the 1,000 game milestone I thought to myself, “Hey, Self, I should write an article celebrating all the amazing, landmark, award-winning games in the ID@Xbox program!” And then I thought: “Meh – that’s exactly what everybody would expect, and ID@Xbox is about embracing all kinds of games – including new, unique and different games – from independent publishers.” And what I enjoy as much as anything else about working on the ID team is finding strange and usual games that you’d never see anywhere else.

So, here we go – some of the most unusual, strangest, and even flat out weird games that you can find on Xbox One, courtesy of the ID@Xbox program.

Anarcute – It’s cute anarchy. Get it? Your goal is to assemble a group of cute animals to take on the evil corporations ruling and ruining the world. As you march through the city wreaking havoc you recruit cute companions to join your cause Mob rule has never been so cute! And man is it cute. They make civil disobedience unbelievably cute. Even the music’s cute!

Goat Simulator In this paradigm of sublime brilliance from the geniuses at Coffee Stain you play (as you might have guessed) as a goat. And you destroy things. And lick things. And when you lick things your goat tongue sticks to things. And can steal Deadmau5’s head. And jump on trampolines (so many trampolines). And you can morph into a tall goat (giraffe), or fancy goat (penguin), etc. And you earn points for doing things. And I guess there are missions – I don’t know, I was too busy licking things.

Headlander – Don’t lose your head over this one! In this 2D puzzle game with some light combat, you fly around as a head on a jetpack thing and suck off the heads of robots, then stick your head on their bodies, thereby gaining control of each robot’s specific abilities. While the “head sucking” premise alone would earn this game a spot on this list, the groovy sci-fi spin on “Austin Powers” kicks it over the edge – we would expect nothing other than something this unique from our friends at Double Fine, creators of Psychonauts, Broken Age, and others.

Level 22 – You’re late for work and you have to sneak to your desk without being seen by the boss or you’re fired! It’s a stealth game set in the world of work which sounds really simple, but it’s actually a pretty complex puzzle game with the addition of vents to crawl through, doughnuts to distract guards with, newspapers and coffee cups and all manner of office paraphernalia. And some of the achievements in this game are seriously meta. This was one of our earlier ID@Xbox releases and I played this thing into the ground. At work. While I should have been working. Don’t tell the boss!

Maize – I used to live in Iowa and I like corn. There I said it. I’m not sure if that’s why I was drawn to the game or if it was the incredible visuals and beautiful art portraying sentient corn exploring a farm and then a laboratory to unravel the mystery of why sentient corn exists in the first place. And along the way you pick up an obnoxious talking teddy bear robot companion who just simply cannot believe that he’s saddled with being a sidekick to a dumb corn stalk. I mean, can you blame him? If you like adventure games, and corn, and teddy bears, and hysterical writing, and corn, then this is the game for you. And if you don’t like all those things then you really need to put some time aside to reevaluate your life choices.

Roundabout – You’re a limo driver and for some reason your limousine is constantly spinning in circles. Sure, you probably could have stopped to get it fixed at any point – sounds like a transaxle (I have no idea what that means). But you just go with it. With your horribly broken car you pick people up, drop them off and undertake various missions. And it’s all intercut with full motion videos (FMV) of these wacky people you’re picking up being wacky. This one is worth playing for the FMV scenes alone, if not to simply try to find out why somebody would make a game like this.

Thomas Was Alone – Unlike a lot of the other games on this list, Thomas Was Alone isn’t a funny game. It’s a serious game about a group of characters, each with distinctive, well developed personalities and a sophisticated character arc that progresses throughout the story. And they’re blocks. Blocks of different colors and sizes, but basically squares are rectangles. But you really care about those squares and rectangles by the end of the story. You really do. It’s weirdly beautiful.

Soda Drinker Pro – This is the crème-de-la-crème of weird games. This is the Mt. Everest of strangeness. This is the Mona Lisa of bizarre-o land. To describe this game in writing is an affront to the majesty of its absurdity, but with apologies I’ll give it a try. You drink soda. And you’re really good at it. And you drink soda on the beach, in a park, in a city and in various other locations appropriate to the activity of drinking soda. If you have mad skillz you can locate some bonus sodas. Sounds amazing, right? But wait, that’s not the half of it – literally. If you manage to stumble through some texture on one wall in level two you are transported to a completely different game. And that game is… also quite unique. There are some turtles and clocks and… who am I kidding I can’t possible describe it. If you have the chops to be a Soda Drinker – and not an amateur soda drinker – then check it out. (And if you’re from the Midwest and you say “Pop” I guess you’re out of luck.)

And so, that’s my list. There are many, many more strange and weird games that you should check out. Honorable mentions include: I Am Bread, Manual Samuel, Stay, The Magic Circle, Three Fourths Home and so many more. Please, go check out some of the weirdness that the ID@Xbox program delivers!

Grow rapidly into a continuous delivery pipeline

If the only thing colorful about your deployments is the language, evaluate canary and blue/green environments.

One application engineering team found that continuous delivery (CD) makes the rapid-fire updates to a high volume of microservices orderly and manageable. But to truly reap the benefits, they must find ways to minimize the blast radius of live code and to catch and roll back anything that mars user experience (UX).

Ibotta, a Denver-based mobile rewards app provider, adopted a continuous delivery pipeline as it moved to a microservices-based app architecture, and it plans to advance to continuous deployment to move code straight to production for even faster releases. When Ibotta ran a solely monolithic application, team members deployed updates via a bunch of scripts. That method couldn’t scale with the migration to microservices — as many as 45 code updates in a day — which drove the adoption of a continuous delivery pipeline, said Scott Bassin, engineering director at Ibotta. That old path to production worked for the company’s monolithic application but wasn’t sustainable in the face of hundreds or thousands of microservices, he said.

In IT organizations, developers’ application delivery decisions shape the approach to infrastructure operations, whether in integrated engineering teams as at Ibotta or in more traditional enterprise setups.

Continuous pipelines rely on orchestration

It’s not enough to simply automate where an admin once clicked through by hand. Continuous delivery and deployment interconnect disparate tools used to provision and manage production systems.

“Often, you’re walking into a setup of tools that are half-tied into each other with funky scripts and such,” said Brandon Carroll, director of transformation, DevOps and cloud services at TEKsystems Inc., an IT services provider that works primarily with large enterprises. To create a continuous pipeline is less about individual tools and more about the orchestration of workflow, he said.

Ibotta has continuous integration (CI) in place, through which developers create and validate code with quick testing feedback and version control. They wanted to extend into CD without a complex product setup, with out-of-the-box integration for the tools they already use for validation, logging and application performance monitoring. After evaluating other options, such as Jenkins and AWS CodeDeploy, Ibotta implemented a CD engine called Harness and deployed it as a service.

“We see CI and CD as two different worlds,” said Steve Burton, DevOps evangelist at Harness. The pipeline engine, whether gated for CD or open for continuous deployment, must push tech code across infrastructures, verify deployments, roll back versions, manage secrets, provide auditability and handle other “unsexy stuff,” he said. Microservices migration is one of the prevalent customer use cases for Harness, because constant application updates on these independent pieces of code can expose brittle areas — such as poor connections that fail to deliver code in the proper format from one tool to the next — in a homegrown continuous delivery pipeline.

Create a safe deployment environment

To continuously deploy to live users, organizations must consider the quality of the code and visibility into each update’s effects.

Testing should be part of a CI/CD strategy, but test is never an exact replica of production. “You can’t replicate that scale, and you can’t put customer data into a [traditional] staging environment,” said James Freeman, head of professional services at Quru, a consultancy focused on open source technologies. Things test fine and pass to production, then they go live and fall over. “You’ve got to put good process behind deployments,” Freeman said in a presentation at AnsibleFest 2018 in Austin, Texas.

Ibotta uses blue/green deployment to handle the multitude of microservices updates per day. Blue and green setups mirror each other and trade off as staging and production environments. The team can quickly revert to a previous version of code without creating a bottleneck. The blue/green changeover currently serves as a gate between development/test and production. As the microservices count at Ibotta grows, Bassin plans to set up the CI pipeline to initiate deployment to production automatically via Harness.

Blue/green deployment is an effective method to quickly deploy and roll back production changes. But it is resource-intensive, and changes hit all users at once, Carroll said. It also requires tight configuration management so the two setups remain the same. “It’s reliable and great for back-end services,” he said. Canary releases are another option for a continuous deployment pipeline, well-suited for front-end UX features.

Canary deployment is so named for the early warning system of a canary in the coal mine. A small percentage of users experience the new code while the engineers monitor its performance and functionality, before the entire deployment occurs. Ibotta plans to switch from blue/green deployment to canary releases eventually for its microservices. Canary deployment decreases the blast radius of problematic updates, Bassin explained.

In a project with U.K. retailer Sports Direct, Quru upgraded 60 nodes successfully on a Friday afternoon with automated Ansible playbooks, but it didn’t roll out all 60 nodes at once. Instead, it started with a single node to prove that the process was set up correctly and the configuration update worked as intended. If the canary continues to sing, deploy the remaining 59 nodes with confidence, and head out the door for the weekend, Freeman said.

Ibotta’s engineers deal with a cumbersome canary deployment process currently on the company’s monolithic application. Ibotta aims to change to canary deployments with microservices, because it can make the changeover to new code faster than blue/green without staging and without the issues experienced on a monolithic architecture, Bassin said.

Carroll recommended that organizations model their operations toolchain and choose a deployment pattern that best fits the pipeline and objectives. Then, iterate on the CI/CD pipeline, with tests and post-deployment monitoring, until they achieve the target cycle time.

Hope for the best — expect the worst

Continuous delivery and deployment cannot succeed without a plan for failure. Even with rigorous control before code reaches production, things go wrong unexpectedly, and you cannot test for every possibility.

Canary deployments are more difficult to roll back than blue/green ones, so organizations must have tooling in a continuous deployment pipeline to manage the process, Carroll said. Many TEKsystems clients move from big, unruly, on-premises builds to cloud hosting as part of ops modernization, as it is more amenable to deployment automation.

Whether they use a CD or continuous deployment process, engineers have to ensure that nothing goes unseen from launch to production.

Ibotta relies on built-in machine learning capabilities in Harness to roll back problematic deployments automatically. “We were looking at logs and metrics and thought we needed to roll back a change,” Bassin said, “and Harness was already doing it.” This automation reduces the amount of time bad code stays in production, which decreases the potential to do harm with rapid updates.
