Windows releases new build of Vista SP1 to beta testers

Vista SP1 RC refresh?
Microsoft has released an updated release candidate of Windows Vista SP1 to about 15,000 beta testers. It's not entirely clear at the moment what changes are included in this update, but the release does show that we can expect at least a few more tweaks before Microsoft releases the final version of Windows Vista Service Pack 1.

Microsoft pushed out a public release candidate of SP1 last month. Unfortunately downloading and installing that version does not make you a member of Microsoft's inner circle, which means that you won't necessarily be able to download the new version through Windows Update or from Microsoft's password-protected download page.

On the other hand, some members of the Neowin forum have posted what may be a direct download link. This probably goes without saying, but download at your own risk.
