Vista SP 2 RC-Escrow New Build Available to [vnunet.com]Selected Testers
Microsoft has published an updated version of Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista, according to reports. The update is expected to be the last build before the Release Candidate and the final code are made available.

The first public beta of Vista SP2 was released to the general public in December 2008, but the latest release - known as the RC-Escrow build - was made available to a restricted group of testers, alongside a similar test version of Windows Server 2008 SP2.An Escrow build indicates that development work on the code has ceased, and that the focus has shifted to fixing bugs ahead of release.

According to sources, the Release Candidate is now expected in February, with the official availability of the service pack coming sometime in the second quarter of 2009.
