    • Yesterday Microsoft released another build to the Windows insider fast ring. Read on to see what's new in build 17083. This is a bit of an odd build in that it seems at first sight that there's not a whole bunch that's new, but that's not really the case; this build includes lots of smaller, but equally important changes and improvements. Having said that, the biggest change in this build is related to fonts. As of 17083, fonts can now be bought, installed and managed from the Microsoft Store. It may not sound like much of a change, but actually it will make font management a hell of a lot easier for yon average user. Here's what Microsoft says about the font changes: The full release notes are here.

    • A new year and a new build ... after almost a month of inactivity, Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 insider preview build, 17074. New in this build is a new take on localisation - rather than downloading language packs "as part of Windows", you now get them from the Microsoft Store. Why the change? Who knows, but apparently it's for the better.

      In addition, there's a whole skew of updates for Edge, pushing even more epub and ebook features into the browser.

      As ever, click here for the full release notes.
