To survive, she sells the chocolate cakes bought by her father. In this miserable village, where some 15,000 Ethiopian refugees are crowded near the border, she approaches the people by asking them timidly: "Do you want to taste one?".
Microsoft has released Windows 10 Build 20246 for Windows Insiders in the Developer Channel. It does not bring any new functions, on the contrary it even removes some, but it is the first from the “fe_release” development branch.
So far, the Insider Builds in the Developer Channel came from the branch mn-release - mn stands for manganese, fe stands for ferrum, because the code name of this new version is "Iron" (ferrum = iron, that's almost everything I do is left over from the chemistry class).
is it important? Yes and no. Officially, according to Microsoft, the Insider versions are no longer tied to a specific Windows 10 version, but unofficially they are of course. This construction, which is sometimes difficult to understand, essentially depends on the fact that the development of the surface features and the actual Windows core run separately.
So it happens that build 20246 is based on fe_release and thus a newer development branch, but it lacks some interface functions, for example the new emoji pickler, the revised touch keyboard, the theme-related splash screens and a few more details. These will be added back over time.
