Microsoft did not come in detail to mention what is modified, other than providing a screenshot. It is solely aforesaid that it’s meant to be easier to navigate and manage which the classes and subcategories are simplified.
Note that the 2 rings area unit on two completely different feature updates. If you are on the Preview Alpha ring, you’re on version 1911, which is the minor feature update that should arrive next month.
