Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs.

 The preview, dubbed build 14316, comes with a range of features including support for Bash, which Microsoft had announced at its developer conference Build last week

Users interested in it can enable the feature by turning on Developer Mode (detailed instructions here), searching for "Windows Features," choosing "Turn Windows features on or off," and enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta).

 To get Bash installed, open Command Prompt and type in "bash" (without the quotes.) 

 Other features included in the new build include low battery notification, find my phone (ring my phone), and the ability to share map directions across devices. 

Additionally, the company has also released a new universal Skype app.

 WhatsApp on Tuesday announced that all types of messages on the latest version of its app are now automatically protected by end-to-end encryption, and the FBI's top attorney is worried some of the platform's more than 1 billion global users will take advantage of the move to hide their crime- or terrorism-related communications.

 FBI General Counsel James Baker said in Washington on Tuesday that the decision by the Facebook-owned messaging platform to encrypt its global offerings "presents us with a significant problem" because criminals and terrorists could "get ideas." 

"If the public does nothing, encryption like that will continue to roll out," he said. 

"It has public safety costs.

 Folks have to understand that, and figure out how they are going to deal with that.

 Do they want the public to bear those costs? 

Do they want the victims of terrorism to bear those costs?

"Maybe the government shouldn't have imposed so many surveillance programs on its citizens -- and kept quiet about it for years -- that they now feel the need to use sophisticated security technologies.
