Today details of the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 emerged from Microsoft and it came from a strange place – the Windows Server Division WebLog:

Today, Microsoft is announcing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. Detailed information regarding SP1 will be released over the next several months;

From Brandon LeBlanc at the Windows Blog:

For Windows 7, SP1 includes only minor updates, among which are previous updates that are already delivered through Windows Update. SP1 for Windows 7 will, however, deliver an updated Remote Desktop client that takes advantage of RemoteFX introduced in the server-side with SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2.

That is it – nothing else to read or be seen at this point.

So they have acknowledged it is in the works but have given no timeline for a beta or release date.

I am positively sure there will be more to come – at some point :-)
