Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Microsoft has released the first service pack for it’s latest Windows OS, Windows 7. Users of Windows 7 should begin to see Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB976932) being offered in their Windows Update control panel. You can also download the installer from the Microsoft Download Center.

There are no major new features coming with SP1. However, there are the following minor changes:

An updated version of Remote Desktop Services. This is required for a change that is coming in Server 2008 R2 with SP1 (RemoteFX).

Better support for third-party federation services. With this update, Windows 7 now supports services that utilize the WS-Federation passive profile protocol.

Improved HDMI audio device performance. SP1 fixes a bug in Windows 7 where a small percentage of users experienced a disruption of audio over HDMI after a reboot.

Minor XPS document fixes. For the rare case where an XPS document contains both portrait and landscape pages, SP1 fixes a bug that prevented correctly-formatted printing.

Hot-fixes and other bug fixes. Like any service pack, SP1 also contains an aggregation of previously released and new hot-fixes and other bug fixes.
