p2pnet news | product news:- Microsoft is ready to released Vista SP1 during the week of July 16, says ZDNet‘s Mary Jo Foley, and, “despite what Microsoft seemingly led Google, the U.S. Department of Justice and other company watchers to believe, the final version of Vista SP1 is sounding like November 2007.”
Microsoft officials, “have been wavering over what to say about SP1 for the past year,” she says, going on:
“Throughout that time, a number of company execs wouldn`t even admit they were planning to release a service pack for Vista at all.”
But that’s water under the bridge and, “If Vista SP1 is released in November, the Windows client team will be sticking to a schedule company officials outlined a year ago, when the official plan of record was to release Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 (Longhorn Server) simultaneously,” says Foley.
What’ll be in Vista SP1
“Microsoft is expected to emphasize that SP1 is more about fixes than new features,” she states, adding, “Most of the elements of SP1 are expected to enhance or supplment features that are already part of Vista, sources said.”
