A new Xbox One Preview Alpha System Update build has been released that brings about more than a few bugfixes and some known issues that are being explored.

As far as significant changes go, this update is relatively light in terms of content. Most of the areas being addressed take shots at profile problems as well as those that have been affecting the dashboard. Miscellaneous fixes for various problems were also deployed, though the update notes didn't go into detail about what those may involve.

In addition to the solutions, there are also multiple known issues that were mentioned in the update notes, the most notable of which is likely the issue that's affecting games' ability to launch. There's a workaround to solve the issue at the moment while Microsoft looks into the problem though, a solution that's explained in the full update notes found below:
