Microsoft has delivered a new preview build of Windows 10 to testers today.

Unfortunately, while the build includes a number of minor interface tweaks and fixes it doesn’t include the company’s highly anticipated new browser just yet.

Improvements include better virtual desktops, Cortana support for China, UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain, as well as lock screen tweaks and more.

There have been a number of tweaks to the underlying Trident rendering engine, however, and Microsoft has confirmed that Project Spartan will be included in the next build of Windows 10.

Yesterday the company announced that Windows 10 will be available in the summer.

Windows 10 testers can grab the latest preview build by heading to the settings app, then clicking updates.
