Microsoft Visual Studio will support automatic updates via Windows Update

Microsoft Developer Community released an announcement on June 8, announcing that Visual Studio will get security updates through Microsoft Update (MU) starting in August. The advantage of this is that the system will automatically update Visual Studio without the need for users to do anything, ensuring that users are always using the latest version of Visual Studio, which not only brings new features and experiences, but also helps fix vulnerabilities and improve security. This update solution only supports the LTSC versions of Visual Studio 2017, 2019, and 2022, as well as the regular version of Visual Studio, and developers need to modify the registry to enable Visual Studio to support automatic updates via Windows Update.source

Microsoft makes Recall opt-in and rolls out new privacy measures

Microsoft responded positively to the controversial Recall feature in a blog post on June 8, saying that the feature has now become an optional feature, and users will be asked whether to turn it on during the OOBE process. If the user chooses to turn it on, Windows Hello authentication is required when viewing the timeline. At the same time, Microsoft also provides additional protection mechanisms to prevent anyone from accessing the entire Recall database. Windows 11 will use just-in-time encryption to ensure that snapshots and search index databases can only be decrypted after the user authenticates using Windows Hello and its enhanced security measures. Microsoft also reminds users of the existing privacy protection measures it has implemented, such as storing snapshots locally and not sharing them with anyone (even with Microsoft), notifying users when Windows 11 takes snapshots, supporting DRM and InPrivate, and being able to filter, pause and delete saved content.source
