Windows Vista Build 5231 Leaks

October 9th, 2005 by Patrick S

A new build of Windows Vista has leaked, a week before the new build is expected to be released to testers.

The October CTP build released to testers will incorporate additional functions than this leak, whilst likely retaining the same build number.

Released with build 5231 are Windows Media Player Version 11 (still under the guise of Windows Media Player 10), which includes a smart new interface, and the latest Beta of Internet Explorer 7, with tabs adopting the more conventional ‘below the address bar’ style. New sound features are added with active output and input monitors, so hopefully previous sound problems have been resolved.

Screenshots to come….

    This makes me ANGRY! Especially since I’ve had conversations about build 5231 w/ internal contacts for over 3 weeks! Do I have it.. no. I’ll wait patiently for it to appear on connect.

    It is dissapointing,
    I cant stand leaking and try to avoid leaked software but yes,
    very dissapointed!

    S, isn’t the title of this entry a bit… Long? LOL

    Yeah it seems that our very own BT Chris123NT had it and there’s some long discussions in our private NG… He said that he will provide all information to MS if he was asked.

    The big question is that of Longhorn Server Build 5231 (which does exist internally, and no, I do not have a copy) It has been said we will see IIS 7 here in the near future.. so I’m hoping to get the chance to play with IIS 7 in the near future. We will have to wait and see.
