Win 7 SP1 out soon

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 should be available soon and won’t have much new functionality, but will have the usual hot fixes and patches. 3 items that will make an appearance are:

  • Advanced Vector Extensions ( AVX ) which will be available in forthcoming processors
  • RemoteFX – an extension to RDP
  • Dynamic Memory – intelligent allocation of memory

The last 2 are only relevant in networks running Win Server 2k8 R2. It also seems that there will be a dependency ( Update 976902 ) before one will be able to install SP1 through Windows Update.
