Microsoft Releases Two Windows Vista Updates
Microsoft Tuesday quietly posted two updates for Windows Vista that appear to be the first major portions of the company’s upcoming service pack for the newest version of Windows.
While a Microsoft spokesperson would not actually characterize the two updates as parts of Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1), similar updates as well as hot fixes have normally been rolled into service packs released by the company in the past.
Rumors have abounded in recent weeks that Microsoft had released pre-beta code of SP1 to a select group of testers, but the company has steadfastly declined to confirm or deny those rumblings.
Meanwhile, the two updates will be released via automatic updates “in the near future,” according to a company statement. That could come as early as next week when the company makes its regular monthly “Patch Tuesday” code drop.
