Windows 11 is now taking a big leap towards its future. The Windows Insider team released the Built 22449 on the Dave Channel. Yes, you read that right, it’s a huge jump in numbers compared to the built – in 22000 that the new Microsoft operating system will release on October 5th. The question many of you ask yourself is: Why is this?
The answer is simple: Microsoft has put the development channel in its natural place. For now, the “standard” configurations of Windows 11 and the representatives released on October 5 are over. The new features introduced in the built-in 22449 are not part of the initial experience we had with Windows 11 but they do bring us new features and fixes that may come in the coming months or updates related to 2022.
These newer versions of the Dev channel are very unstable, so anyone who wants to avoid this situation is recommended to go to the beta channel. The development branch associated with the Dev Channel is now called RS_PRERELEASE. These new features may come to Windows 11 in the future with overall or service updates.
What’s new in version 22449
Changes to the SMB protocol summary
Microsoft first introduced the SMB abbreviation for Windows Server 2022 and Windows 11. This allows an administrator, user, or application to compress files when transferred over a network. Compressed files consume less bandwidth and can be quickly converted at the expense of slightly higher CPU usage during transfer.
Based on the tests performed and the analyzes performed, Microsoft has decided to change the behavior of the summary, and from this framework, if understanding is required, it will always be attempted. For more information, visit Microsoft’s official release on this topic.
