Windows 7: Latest version of DirectX already included in SP1?

Latest version of DirectX already included in SP1?

So I was wondering whether it was necessary to "update" DirectX after a fresh install of Windows 7 with SP1 included, or is the latest already in SP1?

You may want to do the update, but it would be to install some older DirectX components that Microsoft didn't include with Windows 7.

I suggest using the redist (redistributable) version, rather than the Web update. It's a moderately large download, though. I think that the latest version is June 2010.
