Changes, fixes, and known issues

So far, I’ve learned that changes, fixes, and issues are the lifeblood of open source development. For most of the 80+ people who have worked on the project, nothing beats a concrete, concise list of what’s new and what’s broken. This blog posts does a terrific job of capturing that spirit and serves as a great springboard into what’s happening with ncurses development at the moment.

The Galaxy S21 has already been released in markets across the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any issues or changes that we can’t talk about. So, here’s a look at some of the changes and fixes coming to the S21.

“Earth And Stars” is a technology blog, and as such we cover the latest changes, fixes, and known issues for Windows, Mac OS, and the latest versions of both iOS and Android.

  • The latest Windows 11 Insider preview build 22000.100 was just released by the Redmond tech company.
  • The updated Teams experience is now available to all Windows Insiders with this new release.
  • Microsoft also released a long list of upgrades and updates that address some of the lingering issues that plagued the previous iteration.
  • This article provides all of the details about build 22000.100, including a list of known bugs.


Windows Insiders will no doubt be happy to discover that Microsoft has released yet another Insider preview build for Windows 11.

So far, we’ve learned that the prior build caused a slew of issues for us to deal with, and that it even rendered the taskbar useless for many people.

It’s now time to move on and see what build 22000.10 has in store for us from Microsoft. As we come closer to the OS’s formal launch, it will be fascinating to observe and feel how things progress.

Windows Insiders can now download Build 22000.100.

The most crucial question is: What does this new build bring to the table that isn’t already there?

Remember how we claimed that Microsoft only made the new Teams experience available to a select group of Insiders?

Everyone will be able to experience this firsthand with this new release, since the new and enhanced Teams program will be available to anyone who downloads and installs the latest software version.

Other enhancements and modifications include:

  • The hidden icons flyout in the Taskbar’s lower right has been changed to reflect Windows 11’s new looks. (Please notice that after updating to this build, it may not seem correctly; switching between two themes will fix the problem.)


  • Also included is the ability to rapidly access Focus assist settings from Notification Center.


  • When an app’s background activity requires your attention, the app will flash on the Taskbar to alert you. In Windows 11, it has been upgraded with a relaxing treatment that reduces the impact of unwelcome distractions while still grabbing your attention. After the modest flashing ends, you’ll notice a slightly red backplate and red pill under the app icon, indicating that a background activity requires your attention.


  • The size of the touch keyboard icon in the Taskbar has been modified to match the size of the other icons in the Taskbar’s corner.
  • When you click the chevron in the top corner of the Taskbar calendar flyout, it will now fully collapse to offer you more room for alerts.
  • Navigation in the new Microsoft Store feels fast and engaging with the newest Microsoft Store upgrade coming out to Insiders. You may notice some animations when you select an app or movie that you’re interested in. These animations help you maintain track of what you’re viewing.


Microsoft addressed several of the issues that were present in the prior release.

Of course, no software release would be complete without a long number of fixes, many of which are intended to address issues that were identified during the previous build’s lifespan.

Here’s what the IT behemoth was able to change:

  • Taskbar:
    • Explorer.exe no longer crashes when the date and time button on the Taskbar is touched to access fresh notifications while Focus Assist is disabled.
    • When right-clicking network, volume, or battery in the Taskbar, the missing settings icons for the context menu entries were added.
    • Fixed an issue that caused the Taskbar clock to become stuck and out of sync.
    • The volume icon in the Taskbar caused an explorer.exe crash after resuming from standby, which was fixed.
    • The progress bar beneath app icons in the Taskbar was not displaying in some circumstances, thus that was fixed.
    • When you click on the Taskbar when Start or Search is open, they will now close.
    • When you tap Taskbar icons with your finger, you should see the same icon animation as when you used the mouse.
    • When the lunar calendar is activated, the text in the Taskbar calendar flyout should no longer overhang the numbers.

    • The date at the top of the calendar flyout should now be in the format you desire, not the format that matches your display language.

  • Using the Using the File Explorer:
    • When using the mouse to enter the context menu in File Explorer and on the desktop, the keyboard focus rectangle should no longer appear on the initial launch (until you start using the keyboard to navigate it).

    • In the context menu, there was a flicker where New became New Item.
    • Submenus should no longer display half offscreen or unusually far away, thanks to some changes on the context menu positioning algorithm.

The Galaxy S8 is a great phone. It has a beautiful screen, the latest and greatest processor, new swim-proof IP68 water resistance, and a lot of other innovations. However, some of the features you may have been looking forward to, such as the fingerprint scanner, are no longer working. The Gear VR is now missing the Oculus store, too. And a recent firmware update left some of you with a blank screen when you want to turn your phone on.. Read more about f5 security issues and let us know what you think.
