Microsoft: Only minor tweaks in Windows 7 SP1

Windows 7 logoBreaking its silence on the first service pack for Windows 7, Microsoft said on Thursday that it will include only minor updates, including many already released.

"For Windows 7, SP1 includes only minor updates, among which are previous updates that are already delivered through Windows Update," Microsoft blogger Brandon LeBlanc said in a blog post.

LeBlanc said that Microsoft is not yet ready to announce a time frame for either the beta or final version of the service pack. But, he said that businesses should not wait for the update.

"So don't wait," LeBlanc said. "Go ahead and know you want to!"

Microsoft released Windows 7 in October.

On the server side, the service pack for Windows Server 2008 R2 will include two new virtualization features--Microsoft RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory. Windows 7 SP1 will include the client-side support for RemoteFX.

Once finished, Microsoft said it would make the Windows 7 service pack available for download and through Windows Update.
