I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like the April CTP of Windows Vista will not be released today. Bink.nu has posted a letter from Paul Donnelly that was directed to the Windows Vista Beta Tester’s Newsgroups that says they have no intentions of releasing the next CTP of Vista today. This means that the build that eventually gets released, possibly by the end of this week or early next week, may not be the build 5365 that everyone thought it was going to be. Here is the letter from Paul Donnelly:
We are not releasing a build today. I have received emails and IM’s from a number of people about a supposed build release today. This is not the plan and it seems some people out there that have popular Windows rumor sites have gotten some bad information.
As when we released 5342 we continue to look at builds to see if we have one that makes sense to release for further testing and feedback from the beta audience. The fact that we are doing this is not really news. We’ve been doing this since at least prior to 5342. We may have something soon that we can release to you with any luck it could be sooner rather than later. It’s an ongoing process and I can’t make any promises or even speculate what build or when it might be.
I can tell you that 5365 will not be posted for you today and I can assure you that as soon as we have something that is worthy of release we’ll get it out there. I would like to have a reasonably solid, updated build available to you as much as anyone.
