Microsoft has released a beta refresh of its Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack (SP) 1 to selected PC and Technology Adoption Program (TAP) partners, company officials confirmed on August 30.
Microsoft made the refresh build — the build number of which is said to be Build No. 7601.17077
— available to a select group of testers on August 27. There’s no word (so far) on whether there is anything new in that refresh.
“A private interim release went out Friday as part of our normal feedback loop with a small group of our testers – our TAP and OEMs,” a company spokesperson told me via e-mail when I asked about the refresh.
