Internet Explorer Microsoft has confirmed that IE7 will be released as an optional download later this month. The long-awaited next version of Microsoft's browser software will be pushed out as an automatic update a "few weeks" later, probably as part of Microsoft's regular Patch Tuesday update cycle in either November or December. Firms not ready to install IE7 will be able to temporarily block the update.

RE: A lot of MS news lately?

Member since:

Fedora Core 6 is going to be released next week; expect more Fedora news articles around then... and the week after that, Ubuntu 6.10 will be released; I can guarantee there will be a flurry of news items about the 'Edgy Eft'. And of course, when Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) comes out there will be tons of reviews and opinions.

These things come in cycles. Occasionally there's a few simultaneous articles on Haiku or SkyOS or even RiscOS.

It depends whether or not big things are happening in the project (ReactOS having to redo their entire source code database to head off potential legal issues or something like that), not on what Thom or Eugenia like.

This Microsoft binge is because, with a release date finally in sight, Microsoft is trying to drum up interest in the operating system and other new programs that have been five years (and counting) in coming, and attempting to make up for lost time by pumping lots of money into it.

Not to mention, what Microsoft does is currently going to affect a lot more people than the latest developments in other operating systems, hence the debates about all the minutia.
