It appears that IE9 is now up to Build 9.0.8027.6000 (according to one source
), a development release which supersedes Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 7 which was released recently, labeled 9.0.8023.6000.
And as users would expect, IE9 Build 9.0.8027.6000 doesn’t bring anything new to the table, being instead just a refined version of what early adopters can themselves download from Microsoft.
IE9 PP7 was released on November 17th, 2010, two months after the Beta Build was offered to testers, and exactly one year after Microsoft first demoed Internet Explorer 9 to the participants at the Professional Developers Conference 2009 and to the world.
Following the release of the Beta, the Redmond company continued harvesting feedback from developers and testers running IE9.
In this regard, the Platform Preview 7 and Platform Preview 6 release, both of which have been provided since the Beta went live, are in fact designed to integrate feedback from testers as well as soften all the rough edges of IE9’s core.
