Next in development is Windows Blue MP (Milestone Preview Version).
There is no M2 planned, like recent news said. MP will replace M2.

Also IE 10 for Windows 7 is scheduled for Release in the next few days.

Thx to Win8China.com

To think of it as a service pack would be wrong it seems. It sounds way more like a Windows 8.1 with new features and new versions of the apps. Seeing info about IE11 in it and not just something like 10.5 says a lot.
