Windows 8 hits its next milestone -- Release Preview is out now

Juan Carlos Perez | June 1, 2012
Microsoft has released the latest test version of its upcoming Windows 8 operating system, which is now officially in what the company calls its "final phase" of development.

Among the "tens of thousands" of tweaks made since the Consumer Preview are more personalization options for the Start screen, better multimonitor support and new security features for parents to monitor and control their children's online and PC activities.

Release Preview also features improvements to Internet Explorer 10, the upcoming upgrade of Microsoft's browser, including the ability to "flip ahead" on touch-screen devices and an integrated "touch-friendly" Adobe Flash Player. IE 10 also comes with the "do not track" setting turned on by default.
