Beta 1 of SP2 for Windows Server 2003 Begins July 26, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.
Microsoft announced it has begun shipping Beta 1 of Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional x64 edition. However, the beta is billed as "private."
The service pack focuses on the "fundamentals of improving security, reliability, performance, compatibility, interoperability, management and deployment," the company said in a statement.
SP2 includes all current security updates for Windows Server 2003, as well as all previously released hotfixes aimed at addressing issues uncovered by specific customers after SP1 shipped.
My thoughts; specifics are being kept close to the vest. Whether this will include Vista’s 2 way Firewall or any Vista type features is unknown and Im not expecting any kind of major announcement or rollout as by the time this ships Microsoft will not want to take any attention away from its new products
