New download throttling options for Delivery Optimization

We’ve heard from our users with very low connection speeds that setting download throttling as a percentage of available bandwidth isn’t providing enough relief in reducing the impact on their network. That’s why we’ve added a new option to throttle the bandwidth used by Delivery Optimization as an absolute value. You can set this separately for Foreground downloads (downloads that you initiate from Windows Store for example) or background downloads. This option already exists for IT Pros who use Group Policies or MDM policies to configure Delivery Optimization. In this build, we’ve made it easier to set via the settings page.

The June security updates have been released and consist of 88 CVEs and 4 advisories. Of these 88 CVEs, 21 are rated Critical and 66 are rated Important and 1 Moderate in severity. Four are listed as publicly known and none are listed as under active attack at the time of release.

The updates address Remote Code Execution, Information Disclosure, Spoofing, Elevation of Privilege, Denial of Service,  Security Feature Bypass, and Tampering.  They apply to the following:  Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Services and Web Apps, ChakraCore, Skype for Business and Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Exchange Server and Azure.

"Correction to the release notes:

The point "Fixed functionality" was premature -- this wasn't uplifted to this point release and will be in the next major update (in July)."

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18912 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18912 | Windows Experience Blog.

Pale Moon has been updated to version 28.5.2.  This is a minor update to fix a breaking problem in 28.5.1.

From the Release Notes:  Fixed issues with image/texture allocation incorrectly being marked as insecure.


Update 6/4/19: In addition to the Canary Channel we released last week, you can now download the Dev channel for macOS from the Microsoft Edge Insider website. This release enables dark mode, which makes your tabs, address bar, toolbar, menus, and other elements use dark colors if you have your macOS theme set to “Dark Mode.” We’ll expand dark mode in the coming weeks to include other parts of Microsoft Edge, such as settings and management pages. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts using the “Send feedback” smiley, the Microsoft Edge Insider forums, or by reaching out on Twitter.
