Changelog for Edge Dev 100.0.1185.7
New Added Features

- Added a prompt to automatically sign in to sites (with the same account that’s used for signing in to the browser) that are preventing it because they’ve previously been signed out of.
- Management policies (note that updates to documentation and administrative templates may not have occurred yet):
- Added a management policy to control if the Edge Asset Delivery Service is enabled, which is a service that the browser uses to download various configuration files and machine learning models that power certain features.
- Added support for the PDF Secure Mode management policy, which controls Digital Signature validation of PDFs.
- Added an API to WebView2 to update Status Bar text. Note that this API was previously in “Experimental” status, and updates to documentation and SDKs may not have occurred yet.
