I just came across this newsfeed:

http://www.microsoft...-950010554.html

 

If this is true, when can we expect it to be on MSDN/TechNet?

If it's not signed off already, it's getting close. Should be up for grabs within the next month or so.

I hope they have re-added the ability to automatically pin tiles, Use the accent color as the tile background and fixed the issue with xbox movies/music not working with indexed file shares. Otherwise its looking like a good update even more so on the server side with the major improvements to hyperv

Probably not far off, apart from a couple of minor niggles the preview feels pretty stable

8/1?

 

But... you know... 9500 isn't divisible by 16... Windows 8.1 has to be build 9600... so I wouldn't believe this.

 

They wouldn't have signed off on Windows 8.1 2 weeks after BUILD 2013 (June 28-July 12). To sign off on a build, they need a couple of weeks of testing... which would mean they would have had to have already compiled a final build before BUILD.

 

Build.

I'm pretty sure that you can just install the update on top of Win 8.

If you installed the preview you'll have to re-install your software, data remains if I understand it correctly

Also, this is Stephen Rose's reply in his blog, do you think MS would release a Preview "very soon", if the OS has already RTMed? :laugh:

Um, it's been stated plenty of times that it WILL install ontop of Windows 8, through the Windows Store.
