Public beta of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 now available

At its Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, Microsoft has announced, a little earlier than scheduled, the release of the first beta version of Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. It's available in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish and updates both Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, which are both based on the same kernel.

Service Pack 1 will include all patches previously released via Windows Update and several additional hot-fixes. There is no new functionality for Windows 7, although interaction between Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 sees the addition of features including RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory. Further details about those features can be found on the Microsoft server division blog.

Microsoft is expressly not making the pre-release version available to home users and will not support it in any way. As with all pre-release versions, use in production environments and on mission critical systems is not advised. It will also not be possible to install the final finished service pack over the beta, although it should be possible to uninstall the beta and then update to the final version. The beta expires on 30th June 2011, and will notify users of the impending expiry date from 30th March 2011.
