  2. Hello

    That is not quite true. I am sure others will explain to you the difference between Beta\RC1\RTM. It is not the final release of IE7 but rather the final of the Beta versions. The final release is called RTM not RC1

    Bye

  3. It is NOT the final. RC1 (Release Code 1 or Release Candidate 1). It's close but RTM (Release To Manufacturing) is the final.
    The final will be out by the end of the year. Who ever you talked to was confused or there was a miscommunication.

    MS has stated that RC1 is the final pre RTM release as far as functinality
    is concerned.. Certtainly if there are nocritical to fix bugs found in RC-1
    then it could be used for the RTM release. However, I don't remember that
    this has occurd with any other MS product in recent years. Just looking at
    all of the RC1 problems being reported in this newsgroup certainly leads me
    to believe that changes will be made before the RTM release occurs.

    ok i again talked to microsft this time asked for a supervisor and they gave
    me one he said this is final build there will be no changes except for
    patching to it for the problems that exist at hand otherwise he said the
    build itself is finished. you may call them and aske for yourself i bet you
    get same answere. he said the bugs that are out for it will be patched. but
    as for ie itself this is final build. and that there is a bit of confusion
    going around on this bulitan board as to if it is. but told me that anyone
    can call and they will tell thim yes it is final build. only thing that will
    be done to it is patching of curent bugs and fixes that is it. now i dont
    think a supervisor would tell me this if it wasnt true. he also stated that
    anyone can call them for suport on the issues at hand and they will help thim
    with it. he said there should be a notes about this on the boards in a few
    days.

    Here is a excerpt from the link you cuold have read...

    As previously announced, to help our customers become more secure and up to
    date, Microsoft will also distribute Internet Explorer 7 as a high-priority
    update via Automatic Updates soon after the final version is released for
    Windows XP later this year.

    There's a BIG difference between "final build" and "final version/release".

  12. There will be no added features. There will be bug fixes and therefore the
    build number will change.
