Looks like Microsoft is on track with respect to its timetable for IE7.

Re: Microsoft to Update IE7 for MIX Confab

Yes all and all good news. I just wish reporters would do a little more searching and ask a few more questions before writing a story instead of making others do it for them...

News Story....

The special MIX 06 IE7 release will be distributed to attendees, but Microsoft has not committed to making the build public or available on MSDN.

I am showing them our latest bits, which we plan to hand out for the MIX06 conference (and yes, we’ll hand out publicly after the conference too).
They are going to hand out the updated IE7 after the conference is over.

Re: Microsoft to Update IE7 for MIX Confab

I cannot think that the Automatic update version is so far away now. The layout will be fixed in this latest version, so the there on in its sounds like so much window dressing.

How much can still be missing that cannot be added or amended later as part of the routine updates. If you auto-update to IE 7.0 everbody who gets it is going to be on automatic updates so any minor problems shouid be able to be fixed in this manner. What else are they waiting for? An official opening by the Queen perhaps?

I wonder how much it costs to get her to show up to one of those?

I wonder if the phrase "wake up rich" in this situation is too far-fetched.
