Hi Everyone -
Just wanted to send out a quick blog letting you know that RC1 (Release Candidate 1) is out and available for your testing pleasure! You can get RC1 using the below links:
Windows XP 64-bit Edition
Windows Vista 64-bit Edition
Windows 2003 Server
Windows 2003 Server 64-bit Edition
Windows 2008 Server
Windows 2008 Server 64-bit Edition
Please review this link containing some VERY important details about RC1 “getting you ready” before beginning your installation.
I would also suggest reading the release notes for the RC1 release, located here.
Here is a quick list of the 25 supported languages available to these countries for IE8/RC1:
One more little caveat that I wanted to bring up due to some feedback I just received. There is no installer available to put IE8 RC1 on the Windows 7 Beta. For now, Windows 7 beta testers are stuck with an older post-beta 2 version of IE8. Sorry folks...
Now get out there and start testing RC1!!!
