First Update For Windows 8.1 Reportedly Set For An April Launch

report, the upcoming release is expected to be called either Windows 8.1+ or Windows 8.1 Update 1. In other words, we can lay to rest the Windows 8.2 designation. This also means that while the new update will bring along a lot of improvements on both the performance and feature side of things, it will, for all essential purposes, be something of a service pack. A kernel update along with support for low specification processors (think 1GHz) is on the cards, though. The above source also claims that development of this new Windows 8.1 Update 1 is on track to be finalized by March at most, and Redmond has started internal testing of this as of this writing. An April launch, is then, a distinct possibility. Which, come to think of it, coincides perfectly with the BUILD developer conference. Anyway, file this as an early rumor for now, but expect some feature and screenshot leaks in the coming weeks.]]>
