Interim Vista build 5278 released for public testing

Posted by David Hunter at 11:42 AM ET.

Microsoft’s Nick White reports at the Windows Vista Team Blog that a new beta build of Vista was released late last Friday:

Today we released an interim build of Windows Vista, also known as an EDW, or External Developer Workstation. This build is number 5728 and serves as an update to RC1 and runs in parallel with that release. The build is available to the public.

According to Paul Thurrott, the public in this case is:

… a much smaller group of people than RC1, however: Microsoft says it provided the build to beta testers, TechNet and MSDN subscribers, close partners, and a random sampling of 100,000 Customer Preview Program (CPP) participants only.

Mary Jo Foley has a roundup of what’s new and Ed Bott has an important caveat for would be tire kickers.
