Microsoft's latest service pack will bring the ability to record Blu-Ray, numerous Wi-Fi updates, and other tweaks and bugfixes

On the tails of the release of the Windows Vista SP2 Release Candidate to the masses, only a couple weeks later Microsoft has delivered the RTM Escrow build to its Connect beta testers.  Microsoft had already released this build several days ago, reportedly, to its internal testers.

Beta testers can find the new build on Windows Update via Windows Connect.  It has been packaged with multiple install options to test, including Slipstream versions and Standalone installers.  The new build string is 6002.17043.090312-1835, so if you are a tester or have a copy you can check its authenticity against that. 

The new service pack delivers many much anticipated features, along with numerous tweaks and bug fixes which should strengthen the Vista experience.  Among the hottest additions in the new pack is the ability to record in Blu-Ray format for the first time in Windows.  Other key additions include Bluetooth v2.1 connectivity, Windows Connect Now (WCN) Wi-Fi Configuration wireless functionality, faster Wi-Fi resume times after hibernation, Windows Search 4.0, and the ability to configure the maximum number of TCP connections.

For those outside the testing community eager to get their hands on the final version of SP2, it should be available within a couple weeks, as the RTM build typically is the last step before a public release.  Stay tuned for more details.
