WSL update for insiders

The latest Windows Subsystem for Linux upgrade is available to all Insiders, regardless of the ring.

  • Version 0.65.1 of the Windows Subsystem for Linux has just been released.
  • Once Insiders have received the update, it will be rolled out to everyone else at a later date.
  • As a result of the upgrade and Microsoft, WSL now runs on Linux kernel 5.15.57.1.
  • Version 1.0.4.1 of WSLg is now available.

The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) has been updated to version 0.65.1 by Microsoft. It is available to all Windows Insiders, regardless of the ring they are currently in. The update will be made generally available after it has received good feedback and has been evaluated for quality.

Microsoft’s Linux on Windows team manager, Ben Hillis, announced the upgrade through Twitter. That’s why they made it clear that all Insiders would get it.

Better performance and more accurate reporting of bind failures are now possible thanks to upgrades to the localhost relay.
