Winodws 7 SP1 Now Available

The first service pack for Windows 7 has finally made its public debut.

Six days ago, Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 became available for MSDN/TechNet subscribers and had been leaked to the web via torrent for several days. Today however it is officially available for the rest of the world. Other than all the incremental hptfixes that Microsoft has released to date SP1 only contains two major new features, which will not affect the majority of users. The first being RemoteFX, a standalone product that requires Windows Server 2008 R2 to be used. The second feature is an update for HyperV in Windows Server 2008 R2 called "Dynamic Memory". The feature is as simple as it sounds -- it dynamically allocates memory to virtual machines as required and is able to remove memory from virtual machines when others need higher resources.

You can read more about the new features over on the Windows Server Team Blog.

Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) directly from Microsoft.
