The next version of Microsoft Windows, dubbed Windows Blue, has leaked online. A partner version, actually, Build 9364 which was complied on 15th March. It shows off some of the features that are present in Windows 8. The Windows Blue leaked version is already available on online sharing sites. At this point in time it has not been revealed when Windows Blue release date will be announced, but it is expected to enter public preview over the next couple of months.
Screenshots of this leaked build reveal that there will be additional Snap Views which will allow users to open apps side by side with matching width, greatly improving multitasking. We can see that there are multiple Live Tile sizes, smaller and larger than before with more color personalization options. The Share sidebar features a Screenshot button, while under the Devices panel there’s a new Play option. Internet Explorer 11 is also seen in the screenshots, though images don’t reveal exactly what changes have been made to the browser that will come packaged with Windows Blue. Bear in mind that this is an unauthorized leak, the build is not meant for the public. This is an early build and there is a possibility that new features will be added, or the ones seen in these images, can be removed.
