Thanks. I was surprised to see that. I thought they had said future updates would be available for download on the web and as a Windows Update, but I do not see the latter yet.

thai,

I believe MS does not push Release Candidate/Beta software through windows update.

New version, new bugs...
In CSS menus IE 7 won't make the whole link clickable except for the first line of list (<ul>, <ol> and <dl>)
Having hasLayout seems to be the solution (I once found it in the css forum).
#menu ul li a {display:inline-block;} on the anchor to set hasLayout followed by
#menu ul li a {display:block;}
Does anyone know a better workaround?

Do you still have to uninstall Google Desktop/Toolbar to get it to install properly?

I can't believe they consider this finished.

Do not install RC1 if you use Feedreader, it reportedly breaks it.

I didn't and the install went fine. Toolbar was in place when I restarted.

Use a Virtual PC and install it there. Then it can't mess with your primary OS or settings. Virtual PC is free now and VMware has similar options available.

Is this version of IE 7 saving favicons locally?

I have found that since I installed this latest version even after I delete cache, temp files etc etc the favicons are still there, even though I am still offline.

Use a Virtual PC and install it there.

Wouldn't that require an extra XP license? MS normally won't let you install XP on more than one PC.

Yes, you would need a separate license for each virtual OS. I have an MSDN subscription that gives me volume licences for operating systems and software so I can make virtual machines at will. ;)
