Windows 7 SP1 beta now public

Posted on Monday, July 12 2010 @ 22:36:19 CEST by

Microsoft blogger Brandon LeBlanc informs the world that the beta version of Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is now available for everyone at TechNet. If you are a Windows 7 user there's little reason to install SP1 Beta though, because it's nothing more than a collection of all updates that have been rolled out for the operating system so far.
Today, we announced at our annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) the availability of the public beta for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). As Gavriella Schuster and I have mentioned in previous blogs, SP1 for Windows 7 does not contain any new features specific to Windows 7. However, the new features in SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 benefit Windows 7 by providing a richer Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) experience. For Windows 7, SP1 is simply a combination of updates already available through Windows Update and additional hotfixes based on feedback by our customers and partners. For more information on Windows 7 SP1 and new features for Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, I recommend reading this blog post from the Windows Server Division Weblog.

If you are an IT Professional interested in testing Windows 7 SP1, you can download the public beta via the Springboard Series on TechNet where you will find the download as well as other key deployment and support tools. For everyone else, Windows 7 SP1 will be available in the first half of 2011 through the usual channels.
