Microsoft ships new XP SP3 code to testers

Recommended Posts

February 8, 2008 (Computerworld) Following the announcement earlier this week that Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) had been shipped to manufacturing, Microsoft Corp. today confirmed that it seeded another build of Windows XP SP3 to a closed set of testers.


"Yesterday, we released Windows XP SP3 RC 2 to private beta testers," a Microsoft spokeswoman said in an e-mail. "This release catches the build up on previously released hot fixes and responds to critical feedback from previous betas."


The last time Microsoft sent XP SP3 to the invite-only group of some 15,000 testers was two weeks ago, when it issued what it dubbed RC (Release Candidate) Refresh 2. The general public has seen only one version of XP's final service pack, which Microsoft released in December 2007.
