Microsoft has released a new Windows 11 Insider build for people in the Canary Channel. The new build number is 25352. It has a new widget picker experience, and a significant change to the canary channel going forward.

Here is the change log:

Starting with today’s build, Windows Insiders in the Canary channel will notice that the branch name shown in the desktop watermark has changed to ZN_RELEASE. As we have done in the past, we can change which branch we fly from. Because our engineers work internally across development cycles, we may prioritize work to be done in a particular branch and we may need to move internal people between branches. We are treating these builds the same way we would treat builds from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. As a result of this change, insiders will notice that some features have been temporarily removed. We want to bring these features back to Insiders in the future. And ZN_RELEASE branch builds should not be seen as matching a specific Windows 11 release.

Changes and improvements


We’re rolling out a new widget picker experience for Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev channels with an image that provides a visual preview of the widget before pinning, a deep linking capability. which allows customers to go directly from the supplier to the picker. App/Service as well as a link to the Widgets Store collection where users can discover more apps with widgets.
