Microsoft is to release a new CTP build of Vista on the 21st

According to Vista beta testers, Microsoft is expected to release the latest (Community Technology Preview) CTP of Windows Vista on Tuesday. At the same time, the Redmond-based company will also release the first beta of developmental tools for the new operating system.

The February CTP will be a “feature complete release” according to Microsoft co-president Jim Allchin. Regular users (not just beta testers) can expect a Customer Preview Program (CPP) release of Vista some time in April.

The last CTP for Windows Vista was released to testers on December 19th. That release saw a drastically revamped setup process, a new Start button/menu system, the first integration of Windows Defender along with a host of updates to long-standing applications like Windows Media Player.
