Windows 8.1 Update 1 RTM Escrow screenshots leak, final build near?


Recommended Posts


Windows 8.1 Update 1 has hit RTM Escrow, which means development has stopped and finalizing has began. Everything is now in place for Update 1 and no new features are set to be added. Today, we've had our first screenshots of Update 1 at RTM Escrow.

So to clarify. Update 1 includes a smaller footprint, improvements to the taskbar and Modern UI, along with mouse and keyboard enhancements. So overall a pretty welcomed update. Right now, Microsoft are working on fixing any last little bugs before submitting the RTM to partners.

We're hearing that a leak of Windows 8.1 Update 1 build 9600.16610 is set to leak within the next day. This build is RTM escrow, and will be leaked in MSU form meaning it can only be applied to a system which has Windows 8.1 RTM installed. We recommend not installing the leak as RTM escrow is 'NOT FINAL'.

So as RTM Escrow is now a thing, can we expect to see the final RTM soon? We know the update isn't set for release until April, but that doesn't mean Microsoft can't finalize the update and give it to partners beforehand.

Keep an eye out here at WinBeta.org for more. We'll have a video of the new build up when we are able to get our hands on it!

The main post was already posted as NR said, if you had followed WZOR's tweets pic link on Fedupskinup's post, you could have seen the same screenshots, there is no point repeating them, if you make an additional contribution to already posted one, it is better just posting there rather keeping thousand derivate ones :)
