Windows Command Line Tools For DevelopersPersonally, the important change is following:
Chmod/Chown WSL ImprovementsFrom the new version of WSL, you can use chown/chmod commands when you mount local filesystem with metadata option. but there are some limitations.
Inversely, if I have a file in WSL which states its Linux permissions allows writing--but I've disabled write permissions in Windows--I still won't be able to perform actions. Windows permissions for a file or folder will trump the permissions set under WSL.
