Windows XP Service Pack 2 Release Update


Recommended Posts

Microsoft will finalize the code for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) sometime today, release it via Microsoft Download Center and MSDN on the Web tomorrow, and then ship it to customers via Windows Update beginning August 25, though Automatic Update users will get it immediately on a staggered basis.

Microsoft says that its Premier Support customers will be notified by e-mail using the Security Response infrastructure on August 5th that they can begin downloading the Full Network Install SP2 Kit immediately using the Download Center on the Microsoft Web site.

Update: Neowin's Tom Warren tells me the final build number is 2180.

I'll have more information about this release as it becomes available.

It's official folks! Windows XP SP2 has "finally" RTM'd. Proof is on Paul Thurrott's site (winsupersite.com). Build 2180 seems to be the final build number. Microsoft's download servers are going to be busy tomorrow. :)
