Possible RC-Escrow release


According to a new blog from Russian website Wzor, Microsoft’s Windows 7 team has reached a new development milestone and the latest Windows 7 build has jumped to 7105.

The new build was compiled on April 4th with the string 6.1.7105.0.winmain.090404-1235. Overall, the change log lists improved networking support, added support for some previously incompatible programs, added support for new drivers for various devices, extended support for sensory based displays, extras in the LP, small interface improvements, and small optimizations and changes in the kernel.

As it stands, Microsoft plans to release the Windows 7 RC-Escrow build sometime this month, so it is possible that there may be a leak within this week. On the other hand, the official public Release Candidate build is scheduled for May next month, while the Release to Manufacturing is scheduled for September in five months.

Just recently, Microsoft
told its partners that Windows 7 RTM was delayed to September because developers and partners are currently unsatisfied with the builds. No specific reasons were mentioned other than the fact that there were still a few bugs. Nevertheless, if Microsoft’s schedule does not change, Windows 7 should officially be released in November and we hope no later than January 2010.
