A website called Techarp.com has information that Windows Vista SP2 will be released to manufacturing on April 20th 2009. That means that it should hit the streets a month later. So you’re wondering why I’m posting this as you’ve likely never heard of the website? Simple. These guys accurately predicted the release dates of Windows XP SP3 as well as Windows Vista SP1. So however they get their info, it is accurate. If that’s not enough, they have details as to what is in the service pack via their “confidential source” :
- Adds Windows Search 4.0 for faster and improved relevancy in searches.
- Contains the Bluetooth® 2.1 Feature Pack supporting the most recent specification for Bluetooth Technology.
- Ability to record data on to Blu-Ray™ media natively in Windows Vista.
- Adds Windows Connect Now (WCN) to simplify Wi-Fi Configuration.
- Enables the exFAT file system to support Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) timestamps, which allows correct file synchronization across time zones.
The question is, with these changes along with whatever other fixes that we don’t know about (yet), will it suck less?
