Last month, unconfirmed details of the rumored Project Neon for Windows 10 surfaced in a leak, showing a few features of the new design, including animations and transparency effects that brought to mind Aero Glass. Now, Microsoft has verified the new design language coming with the Windows 10 Redstone 3 update called Project Neon.

In a presentation at its Windows Developer Day, the software giant provided a sneak peek of Project Neon. On top of the Aero Glass effect, Project Neon also shows off Acrylic design, a blur effect for the background, sidebar, and app navigation.

There was no actual mention of the name Project Neon in the slides. In the grand scheme of things, Microsoft intends for the new design to provide an engaging ecosystem for Windows users. Project Neon is part of Microsoft’s Redstone 3 update for Windows 10 due for release in the fall of this year. That means the changes would ship after the rollout of the Creators Update in April.

The omission of solid squares on selected objects in favor of new highlights is noticeable in the new design. This may well suggest that the HoloLens apps and 3D interactions have contributed to the design changes. The leak last month contained indications about Microsoft’s efforts to eventually streamline the user experience across the HoloLens and PCs.

Project Neon marks the third design language for Windows, following Aero Glass and Metro. Microsoft will likely reveal the complete details of its Project Neon initiative at its Build developers conference in May.
