Windows 8.1 Update 1 could be officially called "Windows Feature Pack"

Earlier this week, Microsoft reportedly completed work on the RTM version of Windows 8.1 Update 1, also known as the "Spring Update". While the company has yet to confirm this news, a new tidbit of information seems to have been revealed at the Chinese language site ITHome.

In an article which they claim to have information about the installation methods that will be used for the update, the site has also posted a screenshot which shows that Update 1-Spring Update may officially be labeled as the Windows Feature Pack. If true, it would make sense since the update does add quite a few new features to Windows 8.1, especially for keyboard and mouse users; we have contacted Microsoft to see if they wish to comment on this rumor.

The article also states that when the update is released, Internet Explorer 11 will also get a version number bump to 11.0.7. As we have reported before, IE11 will get an "enterprise compatibility mode" that will allow the browser to load up websites that are designed to work best on the older IE8 version.

Microsoft is expected to release the Windows 8.1 update to the general public on April 8th.
