    Microsoft pushes out fixes for Windows 8.1 Preview


    Yesterday, Microsoft pushed out a batch of new fixes for the Windows 8.1 Preview and the Windows RT 8.1 Preview. The five fixes, one classified as Important and the other four Recommended, are separate from the security fixes that arrived on Patch Tuesday last week.

    Glad to see the fixes coming, hope RTM can be September/October.

    So far I like the changes that have been made.

    Hi Brink, When do you think they will start the updates to Windows 8 to change to 8.1
    I can't wait for the improvements on an already excellent OS - well in my opinion at least.
    Thanks.

    MS said the 8.1 RTM will be in Aug but no date. That is when the OEM's get it but no word yet on when the updates will be available.

    It should be available in the M$ store at the same time as the RTM release.

    Thanks to you all for prompt replies. Looks like I'll just have to be patient for a little longer.

    The way I see it there are 3 releases for 8.1.

    1) RTM release to OEM so they can start getting their new products ready.
    Late August per MS
    2) RTM update through MS Store for Windows 8 users.
    Probably late August also - Takes a few days to update their servers.
    3) RTM available for purchase in retail outlets.
    Probably Oct since they have to press all those disc, and ship them to the stores and it has to be RTM before this starts.
    4) ISO download for clean installs
    Have no idea.

    Just my thoughts and time will tell.
