Windows XP Service Pack 3 released to manufacturing

Posted on 22-Apr-2008 11:43 | Filed under: News


Microsoft has announced the released to manufacturing (RTM) of Windows XP Service Pack 3. Windows XP SP3 includes all previously released updates for the operating system, as well as a small number of new additions that should not change the XP experience.

Windows XP SP3 will be released to the web (RTW) on 29th April 2008, and Automatic Update distribution for users at home will begin in early summer (North America).

For customers deploying Windows Vista, enhancements to SP3 (such as Network Access Protection or NAP) will make it easier to co-manage Windows XP and Windows Vista within the same corporate environment.

Online documentation for Windows XP SP3, such as Microsoft Knowledge Base articles and the Microsoft TechNet Windows XP TechCenter, will be updated accordingly.
