Win8china: Winodws 8.1 2014 Update(Spring GDR) Expected in March, Release in BUILD

Sometime ago, I posted a small comment in Neowin News:

screen_169_zpsbc453fb5.jpg

Now, we know about PC Plus(windows/android) for CES, and furthermore, win8china just reported about win8.1 2014 Spring Update, the "Spring GDR" like "PC Plus", had been whispered among OEM's after win8.1 release last year, hopefully we could get more infos later on, maybe a "leak" before it's official release in Apr(BUILD).

Note: win8china had stated the image is just a concept, not the real thing.

Windows8 House (www.win8china.com): the Microsoft Open Win8.1 spring of 2014 Update logging update
Microsoft called Windows 8.1 2014 Update spring updates show up in advance!
Windows8 began, Microsoft Windows starts a new iteration mode, Vista, andWin7 time updating every three years, to present each year a jump. This spring, we will usher in a Windows 8.1 a big update, but it is not Win8.2(Note: detailed analysis see theWindows in spring, not Win8.2), but Windows 8.1 2014 Update, or Windows 8.1+.
Now IT House was informed of latest news, inside Microsoft have opened quietly surveying Win8.1 spring of 2014 Update update, its branches have emerged, such as a language pack on the Microsoft Connect Web site.

The Win8.1 Update will be posted when? It is expected to be completed in March, many of Microsoft's closest partners, would be the first to get it. Microsoft will perhaps be turned on by the user known as "Preview" mode, but even if Microsoft does not provide a "Preview", we should also remember the practice of "leaking" mode. In other words, ordinary amateur in March will get Win8.1 Update 1.
Win8.1 Update 1 officially unveiled, it is Build2014 Conference in early April. Microsoft's Worldwide Developers Conference, held this year earlier than ever before, this points to the importance of Microsoft. At the Build2014 Conference at the beginning of April, Win8.1 spring Update 1 update,Windows Phone 8.1released, new CEO optional wait for Microsoft.
In fact, meaning beyond the Win8.1 Update 1 waiting for WP8.1, Windows and Windows Phone product line on the Build2014 can be synchronized in order to facilitate future integration of the Windows operating system.

To-day Neowin News posted "just" another shot of the en-US win8.1 2014 Update desktop......I guess these shots from win8china might be slightly more interesting:

 

Posted last week, zh-CN edition for the Chinese OEM's:

(btw, the thing on bottom right corner is the win8china tool "win8-master", not a new win8.1 update feature.)

Posted to-day, wall-paper selection "Lines & Colors":

win8china says it's the same like current win8.1, but I think(I am not sure), a img100 was added, because this is from my win8.1Pro:

If they do release the update at build then WP 8.1 can't be far behind, they should be released close together if not at the same time.

WZOR has not elaborated on changes, but added screen-shots to a newer build compiled on Jan. 3.

 

Note: WZOR's comments on win9 (the P.S. part on bottom), seems things are getting interesting, LOL.  :)

The first update to the Assembly 6.3.9600.16581. WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN. 131222-2030 67174982userinfo.gif?v=17080?v=111.2wzascok January 15th, 19:23

January 3, 2014 year was assembled the first update MSU KB2919355 Assembly Windows 8.1 Update 6.3.9600.16581 2014. WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN. 131222-2030, the system now looks like this:

6.3.9600.16581. WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.2 13122-2030
+ KB2919355

kind of like the Visual changes are not visible, pokopaem deeper, report later:) ...

ps: for those who do not read our Twitter will say the deadline for the signing of the RTM of Windows 9 is October 21, 2014 onwards, the Windows at the end of November 9 will go on sale. No Windows 8.2 will not, but task smoothen ' curse failed version".

Remove the "curse of the failed version of" according to Ballmer see Jet Windows 9, Steve Ballmer will leave from the post to the final RTM release of Windows 9, but so that the new head of the company was not connected with Windows 5.0.

Most likely new head of Microsoft company will come into its own with September 1, 2014 year! It is possible that Bill Gates once again for a short time , the Director of Microsoft, on changes in the guide will be known very soon, just the other day!

Later that summer the year 2014 will be an update Rollup for Windows 8.1 2014 Update and the Goodbye Windows 8.1 ... in the desktop segment Windows 8.1 acknowledged failure.

So who's decision was it at Microsoft to give IE 11 a Win95-themed scroll bar? Surprised to see that the taskbar is still transparent.

Probably someone's who doesn't have a clue what they're doing; change for the sake of change (if it lives long enough till the final version comes out).

Well, WZOR mentioned (line below last screen-shot):

 

"kind of like the Visual changes are not visible, pokopaem deeper, report later:) ..."

I wouldn't expect much from Update 1 for windows 8.1 as far as UI goes.  From everything that's been talked about so far it should just be a API update to winrt to bring it closer together with WP8.1s version of the APIs.  They could tweak some little things though but honestly I don't think we'll see anything big till 9.

Still not as bad as the back button been half cut off, i've really disliked that since it happened back on IE9.

No, that's what the scroll bar already looks like on IE11's new tab page, and only that page.

 Yep, you're right, I just tested it out. I guess it's a bug.

Do you not just think it looks out of place?

 

It just looks messy to me, i gave up using IE around then anyway so i'm not too bothered.

Lol, that's like the worst timing ever to give up on IE since it only got dramatically better since IE9
