For those who want a decent alternative to Autopatcher until it is out of beta, try CTUpdate. This makes update ISOs (either individual or combined) for multiple languages and multiple OSs (and now includes Office updates). I've been using this since the last Autopatcher releases (August I think).

Seems kind of goofy to me to use another tool/program, especially one this huge, just to get updates that you can get right from the horses a**, I mean mouth!!

Is this something that somehow bypasses WGA so you can update pirated copies of Windows? Seems to be the only way it would be useful, at times, to me.

This is nothing like Autopatcher, it's not what a lot of people seem to think it is either. These are ONLY the patches released this month, nothing else. It's a huge ISO because it includes versions of each patch for every single supported language. As it says, this is just for administrators that don't use Windows Update.

Looks dead to me. It hasn't been updated since February 2007 and there's no announcement that Microsoft changed their minds. I'm just looking forward to SP3 so I can slipstream it into my install CD and be done with it.

i hope all of this is released with SP3 :)

A service pack by definition will have all the previous updates included.

well, i heard somewhere that they tend to behind by a few months on patches when they release a pack

That is correct, it takes a few months of testing a service pack during which major changes would make the previous testing irrelevant, so any patches issued after a deadlock date are not integrated. There will be quite a few patches available even after a clean installation of XP SP3 on release.

Can you be a bit more specific? I can't see any download links or tutorials that pop out at me...
Edit...
I think I kinda found it in the forum announcement section.
