Windows Vista October CTP Released

Posted by David Hunter at 2:00 PM ET.

Paul Thurrott:

On Monday morning at 8:00 am PST, Microsoft will issue the October 2005 Windows Vista Community Technical Preview (CTP), or build 5231, to beta testers, and MSDN and TechNet subscribers. As an interim build between the Beta 1 and Beta 2 milestones, Vista build 5231 does not include the fit and finish of a true beta, but it does introduce several major new features, including Windows Media Player (WMP 11), Mobility Center, and Network Center, as well as a significant upgrade to Internet Explorer (IE) 7.

This is the second in what Microsoft has promised to be a series of monthly CTP releases. Hit the link for more details and also see Thurrott’s detailed review and Robert McLaws’ overview.
