3 months after the Consumer Preview hit the scene, dear olâ€™ MS has now released the Windows 8 Release Preview. Meaning, the final public version isnâ€™t far behind.
So whatâ€™s new here?
Apps, apps, apps, and – well â€“ more apps. The Windows 8 Release Preview now comes bundled with News and Sports apps, Bing Travel, Gaming and Music Xbox apps. Theyâ€™ve also improved existing apps, such as Mail, Photos, and People, which, if youâ€™re keeping tabs, they introduced back in the Consumer Preview.
Oh, and before I forget, Windows 8 Release Preview also comes with improved multimonitor support, refinements in Windows Store app downloads, new Family Safety features, and added personalization features for the Start screen too.
