Microsoft has released a new version of Windows 11, with Preview Build 22000.132 now in the hands of Insiders in the Dev and Beta Channels.

The new build brings with it a ton of new fixes as well as new issues, but it’s also got some new apps, too.

According to the somewhat lengthy release notes, we can look forward to a new Snipping Tool  as well as an updated Calculator app.

In Windows 11, both the classic Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch apps have been replaced by a new Snipping Tool app that represents the best experiences of both apps in the next evolution of screen capture for Windows.

In terms of the new calculator app, Microsoft says that the tool has been rewritten to allow people to contribute to it via GitHub.

The Calculator app now has a beautiful new look for Windows 11! It also includes a new app theme setting (just like Snipping Tool!) so that you can set the app in a theme different from Windows. Calculator has been rewritten in C# so that more people can contribute to it on GitHub!

Sizeable changes to Mail and Calendar have also gone into this update, including changes that will “make them look and feel part of Windows 11.”

The final Windows 11 build is expected to be made available at least in part this coming holiday season, assuming the beta program continues to progress well.
