In a new blog post, Microsoft details some of the new features that will be present in the Windows 10 19H1 Update. These were rolled out yesterday to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring via the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282 (19H1).

Among other things, Microsoft is testing a new light-colored theme for Windows 10.
Ever since we introduced the ability to choose between light and dark in Windows 10, we’ve heard feedback asking for a truer separation between the two options. When you select Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, the expectation is that the system color would be lighter too. And it didn’t do that before – the taskbar and many other things stayed dark. Now, if you choose Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, all system UI will now be light. This includes the taskbar, Start menu, Action Center, touch keyboard, and more.
