Microsoft has released a new build, 25352, to the Windows 11 Insiders Canary Channel, and at the same time has moved branches to the ZN_RELEASE branch. The move is a bit more than a name change, as “Insiders will notice that some features have been removed temporarily. We look to bring these features back to Insiders in the future. And builds from the ZN_RELEASE branch should not be viewed as being matched to a specific Windows 11 release.”

Along with the branch name change, this Canary Channel build just contains a change to the widget picker allowing a visual preview of the widget before pinning:

  • We are beginning to roll out a new widget picker experience to Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev Channels with an image that gives a visual preview of the widget before pinning, a deep linking ability that allows users to jump directly to the picker from the provider app/service as well as a link to the widgets Store collection page where users can discover more apps with widgets.
Updated widgets picker.
So if you’re in the Windows 11 Canary Channel, you can download the latest build, the first from ZN_RELEASE!
