Microsoft have releases a new Redstone 5 build for Windows Insiders with the Skip Ahead option. Build 17634 has a new option to search through the built-in calendar. The other changes are minor fixes and improvements. Currently support services are Outlook, Hotmail, Live and Office 365 accounts. We do not yet support searching Exchange Server, Gmail, Yahoo or other IMAP.

Here are the changes and lookout for my hands on video soon.
