Windows 7 SP1 launching on Feb 22

Service pack already given to manufacturers

Gregg Keizer

Microsoft has announced that it had wrapped up work on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and would start delivering the major upgrade on February 22 through Windows Update. The company said it had reached the "release to manufacturing", or RTM milestone for both Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and was shipping the code to PC and server makers today.

Customers who subscribe to either TechNet or the Microsoft Software Developer Network (MSDN) can download Windows 7 SP1 starting Wednesday, February 16, the same day companies with volume license agreements can grab the upgrade.

The general public must wait until Tuesday, February 22, when SP1 hits the Windows Update service. Microsoft typically reserves the last Tuesday of each month for shipping non-security updates. Microsoft announced Windows 7 SP1 less than a year ago and delivered a public beta of SP1 in July 2010.

Microsoft has said several times that Windows 7 SP1 would not include any new features specific to the operating system, but would instead be composed of the security patches and nonsecurity fixes that had already been issued via Windows Update. The only additions to SP1 include an updated Remote Desktop client designed to work with RemoteFX, a new technology that debuts with Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
