Yay! IE7 To Ship With Windows Patches Tomorrow

Post by MrNxDmX » Mon Oct 09, 2006 4:53 pm

Microsoft plans to push out Internet Explorer 7 as a 'high priority update' when it ships security patches tomorrow, according to Washingtonpost.com's Security Fix blog. That means anyone who has Windows configured to download and install patches automagically from Redmond will be greeted with IE7 next time they boot up their machines. In related news, it appears IE's worldwide market share actually increased a couple of points since July, despite a number of high profile zero-day attacks this year.

The article notes that the IE7 "containment wall" protected mode will not be available on XP, but only to those who purchase Vista.

A Microsoft spokesperson declined to say whether IE7 would be released tomorrow, saying only that it would be released sometime this month.

Update from the IEBlog team: "We wanted to give you guys one last chat session before we ship IE. So if you can, you should join us for the chat this Thursday, October 12th at 10.00AM PDT (5.00GMT) otherwise you can catch all the action in the transcript." - Hmm thats after patch tuesday! - Steven Parker

BTW, the article was edited to just say that it'll be released this month instead of tomorrow.

Yeah, saw it now.
Update, 1:14 p.m. ET: The above post was changed to say IE7 would be released this month. Microsoft declined to confirm whether it would release IE tomorrow as part of its patch process, only to say that it planned the release sometime this month.

Hi Ryan,
If that is possible, Please reveal that what do you plan:
Do you want to add IE7 to your update pack or want to release it as an addon pack.
Thanks.
