Internet Explorer 9 hits RTM build

It seems that Microsoft has signed off the RTM build of Internet Explorer 9 just a few days before the final version is released to the web on Monday. According to a number of Russian sites, the RTM build is 9.00.8112.16421.110308-0330 and was compiled on March 8.

Earlier in the week, Microsoft officially confirmed that Internet Explorer 9 will be launching at 9 PM PST on March 14 as was previously predicted by Neowin back in February.

The launch will take place as part of their "Beauty of the Web" event, which will be hosted by the Internet Explorer 9 team in Austin City Limits Live. The event will begin at 9 PM on Monday, March 14, 2011 at the Moody Theater. The event will also mark a year to the day that Microsoft launched the first Platform Preview of Internet Explorer 9 to developers and the public.

Microsoft also confirmed that the public would be able to download the final version of the popular browser at 9 PM PST. Users who have already downloaded the release candidate version of the browser will automatically be updated to the final version, most likely via Windows Update.
