Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 RC Now Available!

Microsoft has made available the Release Candidate of the upcoming version of the Service Pack 1, for Windows 7 as well as Windows Server 2008 R2 versions.

With this RC release we can expect the final version of the service packs to hit the public release around 2011 Q1.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Release Candidate will help you:

– Keep your PCs supported and up-to-date
– Get ongoing updates to the Windows 7 platform
– Easily deploy cumulative updates at a single time
– Meet your users’ demands for greater business mobility
– Provide a comprehensive set of virtualization innovations
– Provide an easier Service Pack deployment model for better IT efficiency

The latest build, KB976932, adds new features to the SP1, the Windows Server 2008 R2-related virtualization technologies, Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX:

Dynamic Memory lets Hyper-V administrators pool available memory on a physical host and dynamically distribute it to any virtual machine(s) running on that host.

RemoteFX lets Windows Server 2008 R2 administrators provide a rich end user desktop virtualization experience by delivering vivid content, independent of any graphics stack, to server-hosted virtual and session-based desktops.

Along with these new added features, it also contains all the features which were added in the earlier release of SP1 so it’s a cumulative update for those who haven’t yet downloaded or missed the first release.

Important: If you have installed Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Beta on your machine, you should uninstall that version before proceeding with this release and make sure that you are running a Genuine copy of Windows operating system.

Note: Though the version is quite stable one, keep in mind before downloading that it’s a Release Candidate version and not a final version.
