Windows 7: Internet Explorer 8 released, progress unmistakable

Internet Explorer 8 released, progress unmistakable

The final build of Internet Explorer 8 has been released in 25 languages. You can also grab the download directly from these links: Windows XP 32-bit (16.1 MB), Windows XP 64-bit (32.3 MB), Windows Server 2003 32-bit (16.0 MB), Windows Server 2003 64-bit (32.3 MB), Windows Vista 32-bit (13.2 MB), Windows Vista 64-bit (24.3 MB), Windows Server 2008 32-bit (13.2 MB), and Windows Server 2008 64-bit (24.3 MB).

The public Windows 7 beta is not being updated, and although Microsoft released an update for IE8 for Windows 7 in February, the next update is not likely to arrive until the Windows 7 Release Candidate next month. For everyone else, in the coming weeks Microsoft will put IE8 out as an optional download on Windows Update and then later roll it out to users via Automatic Updates. A quick note to all the IT administrators out there reading this post: the IE8 blocker toolkit is already available, so make sure you get acquainted with it if you're planning on avoiding IE8 when it's released via Microsoft's update channels.

Can you confirm what build number this final release is? Im sure that the version included in the 7057 build is pretty close or IS the final verison.

Interesting as mine is 8.0.7057.0 which would suggest that the version of IE8 included with build 7057 is newer.

Well all I know is the number after 8.0. always reflects the build of the OS and 6001 is Vista SP1.
One annoying feature of IE8 in Vista at least is to forget cookies. Every time I come here I have to sign in again.
Unless that's a problem with the website itself.

That's odd. It has never happened to me but wait for other feedback. Does it happen on any other website?

-And you have got the appropriate config in the tools, NOT to delete cookies?

Not sure where that setting is in IE8.

Does the attached thumbnail have any bearing? The thing is I haven't clicked that delete button although the top highlighted item was unchecked.
Where is a setting to tell IE8 to delete everything at every closing? Because that is what it seems to be doing.

Addendum: It appears to be that...I just closed and re-opened IE8 and it kept me signed in since I checked that item. Weird considering I didn't click "Delete".
