Windows 8 release candidate
Today Microsoft announced a new preview version of Windows 8, the "Release Preview," set for release in the first week of June.
A new rumor claims that the release candidate version of Windows 8 will be given the name "Release Preview". It also continues to claim that Microsoft will launch it in late May or early June.
Some newly leaked Windows 8 release candidate screenshots seem to show that the Explorer Bar will get a very slight change, making its user interface flatter and similar to the Metro UI.
A new report claims that Microsoft will launch the Release Candidate version of Windows 8 to the general public sometime in late May or early June, ahead of its final shipping version.
A new article at WinUnleaked.tk claims to reveal more information about what Microsoft has added to the Release Candidate version of Windows 8, which is still under development.
