Windows 7 RC1 Dates Confirmed

windows seven logoCiting trusted sources within Microsoft reported Friday that a Windows 7 Release Candidate is currently being tested internally at Microsoft and the official release date is set for April 10, 2009. Details are fairly sparse at this time with Neowin stating that "not much information is available."

Microsoft has yet to announce plans for the RC so it's uncertain if the release will be world-wide, or even if it will make it to the public. However it is likely that TechNet and MSDN subscribers would be the first to receive the RC build and given the previous leaks I'm sure we'll see it arrive on Torrent sites not long after reaching them.

Microsoft is currently working on pre-RC builds of Windows 7, the latest build being 7046. Yes that is 7046 not 7048 as mistakenly reported on some other sites. Just last week build 7022 was leaked to torrent so it would appear as though Microsoft is working feverishly to get these build out.

As of yet there is no word on the latest round of changes or any of the possible changes for the RC. Windows 7 Build 7022 had several minor improvements including better UAC control, minor visual improvements and reportedly a higher level of overall stability.
