Microsoft has announced today that the eagerly anticipated Windows 8 Release Preview will be released later tosay . The confirmation comes from a post on the the often reported on Building Windows 8 blog. The post has since been taken down.
A Chinese version of the Windows 8 Release Preview was leaked onto the web a couple of days early yesterday and many Microsoft enthusiasts have already begun digging up some new features and notable improvements. One such feature that users of the build can expect is the inclusion of Flash Player for Metro Internet Explorer. The feature was just recently announced and was thus not included in past Windows 8 milestones.
We’ll have full coverage of the release and a hands on of the build the day goes on, so be sure to check back throughout the day for the most up to date coverage!
