Microsoft Corporate VP Mike Nash gave word on the official Vista blog that the beta for Windows Vista's second service pack will be made available this coming Wednesday. This pack will contain a collection of previous updates, as well as the following changes:
* Windows Vista SP2 adds Windows Search 4.0 for faster and improved relevancy in searches.
* Windows Vista SP2 contains the Bluetooth 2.1 Feature Pack supporting the most recent specification for Bluetooth Technology.
* Ability to record data on to Blu-Ray media natively in Windows Vista.
* Adds Windows Connect Now (WCN) to simplify Wi-Fi Configuration.
* Windows Vista SP2 enables the exFAT file system to support UTC timestamps, which allows correct file synchronization across time zones.
A final release date will be later set based on tester feedback.
