    For those in the Windows Insider Program, Microsoft has pushed out a new build (9860) today. So far what I can see is it has added the Notification Center, new Fly-out Animations for Opening and Closing Applications or Explorer Windows, Added more functionality to the PC Settings (Removing the Network Charm Fly Out Functions from the earlier build that worked like Windows 8.x)

    It seems to have broken my ScreenBeam Pro Miracast Adapter...more too come

    So, as it turns out, my preferred method of installing beta builds (using a VHD file) just doesn't work with the Windows 10 Technical Preview updater. Looks like I'll have to switch the install method.

    So I installed the original preview build, and then updated that to 9860.

    First of all, I think I made one mistake in not doing the Windows Update driver updates for my Pro 2 before upgrading the build. When I got to 9860, a ton of drivers were missing that I didn't have a problem with previously. Still, I was able to download the driver pack and fix most of that.

    A couple things they did for touch that are nice. One, the taskbar auto-hides on the start screen and in fullscreen Metro apps unless you swipe from the bottom. The top minimize,maximize, close buttons do the same as well unless you swipe from the top. And the onscreen keyboard now appears to auto-pop up on all programs / apps, including desktop stuff.

    I still greatly prefer the Windows 8 method of window management (aka all fullscreen Metro apps), but it definitely is an improvement from the first build.

    It appears that this build breaks Wireless Displays, I've tried my ScreenBeam Pro and PTV3000 and both end with a Driver Error. I've submitted feedback.

    Also it appears the SP3 isn't hibernating after 4 hours (same as the last build). Last night put into Connected Standby with 81% Battery, this morning 8 hours later 72%, stayed in Connected Standby.

    I thought the preview would be updated through Windows Update? My install in Hyper-V doesn't prompt for an update though, should that work?

    Same issue here. I have a Belkin Screencast. Driver error when try to connect it. With previous version of W10 Preview it worked.

    Can you tell me how to retrieve your feedback to validate it? I search "miracast" but I don't see it

    Go to PC Settings, and then Update and Recovery. You'll see a special "Preview Builds" section. The VHD thing is apparently a known issue though.
