Should become available in a few minutes. Well, that was the main reason i rolled back. I also figured it might be still a li...

So Windows 10 has lock screen notifications as well as Android. It would be super cool if there was fancy icons for weather and forecast, calendar notifications, email, etc.. on the lock & login screen.

Just a suggestion...
