Re: final release date for IE7

A few tidbits from Microsoft's latest IE7 "chat":

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/e...511_ez_ie.mspx

Q: do you expect the full IE 7 release to occur before the Vista launch in Nov?
A: At this time we can't say anything more specific than we expect to have a release in the second half of this year.

Uche (Expert):
Q: when the full release of IE7 does come, will it be an auto-update?
A: at this time, there is no definite answer to this question, please stay tuned

Scott Graff (Expert):
Q: when the full release of IE7 does come, will it be an auto-update?
A: We are still working out the plan for how the final version of IE 7 will be deployed.

So:
(a) They are allowing for IE7 to be pushed into 2007
(b) No guarantees IE7 will be auto-update.

I can see a lot of people with a lot of "renewal fees pain" early next year .....
