Microsoft Releases XP Patch
By Brian Morrissey


Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) will release a patch for Windows XP next week that will allow users more choices in their browser, e-mail, instant messenger and media player, according to reports Friday.

The patch will represent the first product changes the company has made as part of its proposed anti-trust settlement reached with the Department of Justice in November. Nine states are challenging the judgment in court, leaving the settlement pending.

The Windows XP Service Pack, set for release to 10,000 beta testers next week, will be widely available for free download in August in a 40-megabyte patch, the Wall Street Journal reported. The service pack will address some of the anti-competitive charges that were made against the Redmond, Wash. software giant. It will give manufacturers more choices between Microsoft and non-Microsoft products, allowing them more options to use third-party software.

The heart of the anti-trust case against Microsoft was the company's practice of bundling its many programs with its ubiquitous Windows operating system. The government charged the practice put rival programs, such as the Netscape browser, at a severe competitive disadvantage against Microsoft products. The new patch does not un-bundle Microsoft programs, but it does give computer manufacturers and users more options about which programs are used.

For example, a new start menu button called "set program access and defaults" will allow users four choices: computer-maker's settings; Microsoft only; non-Microsoft only; and customized. The default choice is customized.

The new options could help computer manufacturers, who can now choose third-party middleware, as well as rival manufacturers of Microsoft products like AOL Time Warner and RealNetworks.

Another change is the patch will stop Passport from prompting users until they have visited Hotmail, MSN, or another Microsoft site or program requiring Passport's personal-identification system.

Between now and the general release, Microsoft plans to open its code to other software companies, allowing them to write their programs to work seamlessly with Windows XP.



in poche parole se ho capito bene dovrebbe uscire una nuova patch la prossima settimana che dovrebbe fare delle modifiche molto inportanti che sono state richieste dall untitrust americano...
poi altra news sembra che la prossima settimana sarà rilasciata a 10000 betatester il service pack 1 di winxp che dovrebbe essere rilasciato in agosto questo service pack dovrebbe essere di 40 mega...sembra poi leggendo quello che c'è scritto sulla news di yahoo che questo SP1 in qualche modo sia "impossibile" da installare nelle versione di xp craccate ....
boh questo è il poco che sono riuscito a capire da questi spoiler dato il mio inglese scarso
ciaoz ;)

WMP 9 Download

Thanks Arnaudt & Bunnios for the leak & Kamadake & Hellgod for the links...Building on the industry-leading Windows Media Audio and Video odecs, "Corona" introduces two new professional-level audio and video codecs. The new WMA Professional codec is the first codec to enable Web-based delivery of 6 channel surround sound with full-spectrum, full resolution audio (24 bit / 96 kHz sampling).
A new version of the Windows Media Video (WMV) codec provides a 20% efficiency boost compared with the previous version and now introduces the ability to provide HDTV-like video quality at file sizes half that of today’s DVDs, for local playback on the PC.

Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 Build 1082

Howdy fellow ie6 sp1 people. It seems that those nice people down in south america (what? I thought brazil was in russia!) have got a nice present for us : IE6 6.0 SP1 Build 1082. This would appear, as neobond stated earlier too be an internal built as my beta tester contacts tell me that this is not offered for download at the moment, on the microsoft beta website.

Anyway, download at braziliantech.com.

link da dove si scarica il file di setup (http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/ie6sp1/x86/en/IE6SETUP.EXE)

See inside for the full download links to Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Alternatively you can download it direct from Microsoft from here if you have the patience.. Web install doesn't work yet.

UPDATE: Microsoft Implements Antitrust Concessions

Microsoft announced today that it will implement four provisions from its proposed antitrust settlement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ), even though a federal judge has yet to decide whether to accept the agreement. Microsoft said that it decided to implement these provisions now because the company's agreement with the DOJ includes certain timeline milestones, and four of those milestones occur this month.

Advertisement:

"Although the proposed settlement has not been entered by the District Court, Microsoft has agreed to implement certain provisions of the settlement agreement while the court process is pending," the company wrote in a statement. Brad Smith, Microsoft's senior vice president and general counsel, said that the company will implement the following provisions:

Deliver Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) this summer. Smith said that the company is on track to ship SP1 this summer and later noted that the release will ship on or after August 28. XP SP1 includes a UI change that lets end users and PC makers hide access to five key middleware components--Internet Explorer (IE), Outlook Express, Windows Media Player (WMP), Windows Messenger, and Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine (VM). Based on feedback from beta testers, PC makers, and the DOJ, Microsoft will make additional changes to XP SP1 to make the product's middleware-hiding feature "even more clear to users."

Disclose several internal interfaces, or APIs, in Windows. On August 28, Microsoft will publicly disclose more than 270 internal interfaces related to the five previously mentioned middleware components. Smith said that Windows uses these interfaces to trigger functionality that the middleware products expose. The company will release this information on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN). "None of these interfaces have previously been disclosed," Smith said.

Launch a new communications protocol licensing program. Part of Microsoft's proposed settlement requires the company to start a communications protocol licensing program by August 6--tomorrow--and Smith said that the company will comply. Windows desktop OSs use these protocols to communicate with Windows Server OSs. Smith noted that Microsoft will disclose 215 interfaces to licensees, although the company recently publicly documented more than 100 of these. However, in compliance with the DOJ agreement, Microsoft will require third parties that want to license these protocols to sign a nondisclosure agreement and pay royalties. "This is valuable technology," Smith said, "and it represents a lot of the value in Windows Server. But we're going to license them for reasonable terms, a royalty, and ensure that our intellectual property is protected." Smith said that the licensing program is task-based; licensees can pick the base protocols plus any combination of 12 protocol tasks, including file serving, print serving, and streaming media. "This is a novel licensing program," he said, "the first of its kind."

Enter into new contracts with PC makers and other OEMs. This requirement actually went into effect August 1, but Smith addressed complaints that PC makers such as Gateway raised earlier this year that the new licenses let Microsoft essentially steal intellectual property. Based on those complaints, Microsoft made several changes to its licenses and expanded the company's patent-identification responsibilities. "This means we have explicit obligations to uphold our partners' intellectual property," Smith said.

Microsoft's decision to implement part of its proposed settlement without a judicial order is somewhat controversial because Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is currently reviewing both the Microsoft/DOJ agreement and a more stringent set of remedy proposals the nine so-called nonsettling states recommended, and she's expected to render a decision soon. Microsoft, as I'm sure you'll recall, was found guilty of violating US antitrust laws and of harming consumers, competitors, and even its own partners.


pensate di tutto questo :D ho capito solo che il sp1 uscirà ufficialmente il 28 agosto
