New Windows 10 20H1 Build Brings WSL2 Support to ARM64

Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 10 20H1 to users in the Fast ring, and the changelog includes several notable improvements.

First and foremost, the second-generation Windows Subsystem for Linux is getting support for ARM64 devices, which is truly good news especially as Microsoft is expanding at full speed in this direction.

And this isn’t all for WSL2. This new build also updates the Linux kernel to 4.19.67 and introduces a new option to allow unprivileged users to view kernel log. Support for battery and AC adapter passthrough has also been added.

“We’ve also added the ability to set your distribution’s default user using the /etc/wsl.conf file. This release also contains multiple bug fixes, including a long-standing issue for legacy Windows symlinks (for example those in the user profile directory),” Dona Sarkar, chief of the Windows Insider program, said.

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
