Microsoft tightens XP's security

Thursday, 18 March 2004, 12:45 PM EST

Microsoft on Wednesday released a close-to-final version of the second major update to Windows XP, adding new security tools to the operating system.

The Release Candidate 1 (RC1) version of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP includes several significant changes from the test version released last year. RC1 versions of software releases are typically bridges between the beta and the final release, incorporating changes based on tester feedback. The final version of SP2 is set for release in the second quarter of this year.

Service packs are roundups of bug fixes and product updates Microsoft periodically releases for major products.
