Well the TechBeta interim build is 5536. It is on the TechBeta servers now.

I forgot to add that it is only the x86 version so far. There may not be
any need to release the x64 version this time, depending on what the Vista
team wants us to evaluate. Or maybe it will be along later.

Colin:
Thank you for teasing me, glad to hear about the new release. It
means that a new CPP build may be released soon.

Until I see either release notes (they are bundled in the download) or get
the email notification that the download is available I don't know any more.
The email will probably spell out what MS wants from TB this time.

The next CPP drop will be RC1 and I bet it is not far off. The absence of
an x64 build is unusual. It may mean that we will only be asked to provide
feedback on quality. If so, it is a true RC1 preview and RC1 might turn out
to be 5536 if the feedback confirms what MS believes about Vista's current
condition. I have seen talk along those lines. Vista may be for all
intents and purposes a done deal now.

The servers must be getting hammered, based on my slow download speed. It
will be tomorrow morning before I can install. I am also going to be
offline most of tomorrow since the computer I use for posting to the ng's
happens to be the one I am replacing with my new Core 2 Duo system. The
FedEx tracker shows it is due for delivery tommorow also. Busy day ahead.

"Pre-RC1 build 5536.16385" to be precise. This is the RC1 preview release.
The announcement is up on TechBeta with specific instructions. The deadline
for completing the instructions is shockingly close. Less than a week.
That might mean RC1 release will be during the week following Labor Day.
The speculation about 9/7 may be right on.

No. I don't plan to put Vista on it until rtm. It's my primary home
computer. The AMD64 x2 machine is the main test box. You win!

Just because I ordered a Core 2 Duo machine with 4GB of PC6400 ram, 1TB of
internal storage, and a GeForce 7900GT card? Just FYI, OOBE, FWIW, RTFM.

nd the next drop would then be "Pre-Almost-RC1 build 5632.xxxxx". And the
one after that? "Pre-Real-Soon-Now-RC1 build 5789.xxxxx". Boy, I gotta getta
life! Just FYA. ;-D

This is a public newsgroup hosted by MS. You should restrict Technical Beta
material to the closed newsgroup that TechBeta are privy to.
