Here is the changelog –
Changes and bug fixes
- As mentioned before, one of the key highlights of this particular is the potential solution to certain ongoing VPN issues. KB5010795 attempts to resolve a glitch that would sometimes cause IP Security (IPsec) connections containing a Vendor ID to fail. It was also noted that certain VPN connections that use IP security Internet Key Exchange, in short, IPSEC IKE or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) might also get affected.
- Another important improvement KB5010795 is that it also addresses an issue that would interrupt removable media formatted with the aid of the Resilient File System (ReFS) while mounting. This problem also might cause the removable media to mount in the RAW file format. The bug was noticed to be occurring after getting the 11/01/2022 Windows update on a system.
Currently, there is just one known issue with this patch, as explained below:
Certain image editing tools are showing problems in rendering colors correctly on some High Definition Resolution displays after the upgradation or installation of Windows 11. The problem was frequently observed with white color which displays in bright yellow or other similar scale colors. This issue was noticed to be occurring when certain color-rendering Win32 APIs end up with an error or unexpected information under specific conditions. This doesn’t seem to affect all color profile management programs. Furthermore, note that color profile options that are available on the Windows 11 Settings page and Microsoft Color Control Panel is supposed to function correctly.
As of now, no workaround has been indicated for this issue. However, the developers have assured that they are working on the issue. One of the upcoming updates that are supposed to roll out by the end of January or in Feb is expected to address the same.
