Microsoft has just released the Release Candidate (RC) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This release would be the last public beta build prior to the final Release to Manufacturing (RTM) package.

Besides cumulative updates, the only new features added to SP1 are Windows Server 2008 R2-related virtualization technologies, Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX. These features ‘enable a more scalable and rich user experience’ for those who choose to deploy Windows through Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Windows 7 SP1 will enable computers to take advantage of these server-based features for a better VDI experience, but there will be no new Windows 7-specific features.

If you are keen on trying out SP1 RC, it is available for download directly from Microsoft here.
