Some weeks ago, I read about Windows 10 1903 in a blog post from Mike Fortin here: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/04/improving-the-windows-10-update-experience-with-control-quality-and-transparency. Since general rolllout wasn’t until May, I decided to wait until after Directions NA to do my update.
1903 was made available on MSDN and internally for people who wanted to update early and I didn’t really pay too much attention to this.

- Why can’t Business Central find the Assert Codeunit?
Just to name a few.
This blog post will try to explain how symbols works and give an answer these questions, by showing some samples. Continue reading

For a few months we have known that Docker for Windows would get support for process isolation under Windows 10.

A few days ago the feature was released in the edge release of Docker Desktop. Continue reading
