via Twitter and buried in the update for the previous release in the link above, Edge Dev was updated to Build 85.0.564.13:

Today's small update should provide a fix for the issue where some icons are too big.  Additionally, we improved the relevance of Family Safety reporting data, and we fixed an issue where certain management policies like HomepageLocation or NewTabPageLocation stopped working and returned a message that they were blocked.
