The Canary channel for the Windows Insider Program is hosting its first preview of Windows 11, build 25314. It’s available for a few hours, and introduces some new features.
As a reminder, the Canary channel starts on branch 25000 of Windows 11 while the Dev channel remains on branch 23000. It’s also important to remember that the different builds are “hot and boiling” i.e. very little validation and come with very little “documentation”.

We also have LSA (Local Security Authority) protection. Its purpose is to provide protection against theft of credentials used to log in. It serves to make it impossible to execute unauthorized code in the LSA process. It also prevents memory dumping. Giant specifies that the review is done in advance to ensure there are no incompatibilities. If so, LSA protection is activated automatically.
Narrator picks up updates for its Outlook support when it starts. There are no add-ons but this work allows for updates through the Microsoft Store.
