Windows to get support for leap seconds

Microsoft leaps seconds ahead of Apple

Microsoft is finally going to support leap seconds with the next update to Windows 10, coming this fall, and on Windows Server 2019.

There's a new transparent Live Tile option in Settings, in case you don't like the classic OneNote purple color.

New Page deep link tile. You can now quickly select a range of cells.

Optional OneNote tile transparency.

Added a new Online Video button on the ribbon's Insert tab, making it even easier to embed videos and other interactive content on the page.

Default paste. This one isn't actually new to this version, but it's a nice addition: You can now choose a default paste method, as you could previously in OneNote 2016.

You now have an option to whether include source link during paste process or not.

Clear Formatting function updated to "clear any custom paragraph spacing which may have been copied over from another source, so you can get your text back into pristine condition".

The simplified ribbon option is now available. Meaning that it no longer looks like a PlaySkool toy. You can enable this in Options menu. Now you can disable that.

You can easily add symbols using the Symbol Gallery on the ribbon. And you can now choose whether or not to include the header row when sorting.

Improved eraser. For those using smart pens, the Eraser tool now supports two new eraser sizes. While leap seconds is not a concept that is known to many end users, it is still a big deal because new government regulations from the USA and European Union require all devices to have support for it. Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 will become the first operating systems with support for leap seconds as the updates are pushed out.
