Komt Windows 8 Preview vandaag al?

Microsoft heeft per ongeluk een blogpost online gezet waaruit blijkt dat de Release Preview van Windows 8 vandaag al kan verschijnen.

De Release Preview is de laatste publieke testversie vooraleer het besturingssysteem zijn definitieve vorm krijgt. Totnogtoe zei het bedrijf dat de preview begin juni zou komen, maar dat kan dus nog vroeger.

De blogpost in kwestie stond op de Hardware and Driver Developer Blog maar is intussen alweer offline gehaald. In die tekst wordt verwezen naar de Release Preview met een link naar een site die vandaag online zou komen.

Neowin was zo verstandig om een screenshot van de blogpost te maken alvorens deze offline werd gezet. Naast de Windows 8 Release Preview (wat vroeger de Release Candidate werd genoemd), is er ook sprake van een nieuwe Windows Driver Kit 8 en Visual Studio 2012 Release Preview.

Komt Windows 8 Preview vandaag al?

Als de Release Preview echt vandaag online komt dan zal dat vermoedelijk in de late namiddag of avond gebeuren omwille van het tijdsverschil met de VS. In afwachting kan je hieronder de offline gehaalde blogpost letterlijk nalezen.

Welcome to the Windows 8 Hardware blog! I'm Chuck Chan, Corporate Vice President on the Windows Development team. We're very excited to make available today the Windows 8 Release Preview on the Windows Dev Center. Windows 8 represents a leap forward for the Windows platform, the development tool set, and the device experiences you can build for Windows.

We're launching this blog to give you some insight into how we designed and built Windows 8, and to explore the best practices for developing great hardware and drivers, as you enter the new world of Windows 8 development.

 

The people contributing to this blog are the engineers building Windows 8 and the tools and kits that support it. Our goal is to help you get started by focusing on the "why" and "how" of building amazing PCs and device experiences for Windows 8. Each blog post will present a development topic and tie together information from the Dev Center, Forums, MSDN Library, and where it makes sense, samples from the Windows Hardware Code Gallery.

We designed the Windows 8 platform and tools to help you create high-quality drivers and Metro style device apps using an integrated, modern tool set. Using the Windows Driver Kit (WDK) and Visual Studio, you can write, build, sign package, deploy, test, and debug your drivers and apps directly from Visual Studio. With the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit, you can ensure the compatibility and reliability of your devices, and provide a great overall user experience.

 

To get started, download and install Windows 8 Release Preview, the Windows Driver Kit 8, and Visual Studio Professional 2012. The Windows 8 SDK is also included with Visual Studio. As you begin using Windows 8, you'll notice that we've added new features and improved existing ones. In addition to providing a modern tool set, we've also been hard at work improving power management and refining the way you provide a great user experience for devices with Metro style device apps. We'll share more details in future posts.

The Windows Development team will post to this blog once every one to two weeks until the release of Windows 8. Commenting is encouraged, and we are looking forward to a lively conversation. Please apply common courtesy and stay on topic with your comments. The Windows Hardware Community Forum is also a great place for hardware-related questions and discussion about Windows 8.
