Windows XP Service Pack 3 RC2 Build 3300

Windows XP Service Pack 3 RC2 Build v.3300Windows XP Professional Build 2600.xpsp.080125-2028 (Service Pack 3, v.3300)

Microsoft presents Release Candidate 2 of Service Pack 3 for Windows XP

Microsoft is putting the finishing touches to Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. Last December, the first Release Candidate (RC) of SP3 was made available for public download; now, Microsoft has released a second RC. Versions of XP that have this update report for work as "Service Pack 3, v.3300" with build number "2600.xpsp.080125-2028".

Unlike RC1, RC2 is not yet available to the general public for download, but only to a small group of registered beta testers. It is not yet clear whether Microsoft will ever make RC2 available to a larger group of testers.

SP3 upgrades all 32-bit versions of Windows XP, provided that at least Service Pack 1 has been installed. In doing so, it differs from all previous service packs: up to now, all of Microsoft's service packs have been cumulative, meaning that they contained all patches and updates of previous versions. In contrast, SP3 for XP only contains the patches and updates that have appeared since SP1. RC2 also contains a number of add-ons available separately, such as Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.5, Windows Installer 3.1, Management Console (MMC) 3.0 and Core XML Services 6.0.

The final version of SP3 is expected sometime in the first two quarters of 2008, by which Microsoft usually means the second quarter, not the first. SP3 will be the last service pack for XP. However, patches for security problems that Microsoft categorises as critical will continue to be available for free until at least 2014. (jk/c't)
This is the self-extracting executable that contains the update package for Windows XP Service Pack 3 Release Candidate 2.

It is recommended that you apply this update package to an activated, genuine copy of Windows XP, in a test environment. As with any pre-release software, it is also recommended that you back up files and settings on your machine before applying this update package. You may apply this package to previous pre-release editions of Windows XP Service Pack 3 (e.g., the Release Candidate Refresh).

A Microsoft disponibilizou para os beta-testers o Release Candidate 2 do Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Build 3300). Diferente dos builds anteriores, que eram disponibilizados quase sempre em inglês, francês, alemão e japonês, desta vez a Microsoft disponibilizou também a versão em português brasileiro.

De acordo com comentários de alguns beta-testers, o build 3300 provavelmente será o mesmo da versão RTM (isso não foi confirmado).

O Windows XP SP3 contém todas as atualizações lançadas anteriormente para o sistema operacional e inclui um pequeno número de novos recursos e funcionalidades. Entre elas estão o Network Access Protection (NAP), um novo modelo de ativação do Windows em que o usuário não precisa digitar a chave no momento da instalação, detecção de “Black Hole Router” (o Windows XP SP3 pode detectar e proteger contra roteadores que estão descartando dados) e o novo Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module.

A versão final tem lançamento previsto para o primeiro trimestre de 2008.

It's in that Chinese Forum. I can only read the few lines what google bot have indexed. I did try with a custom spyder to index that forum with google bot ID and skip .hatacc + robots.txt but non of my webhosts or me have a google ip. Browser spoofing UA to google bot doesn't work as well. They have a ip check for google bot. We don't have access to them forum, wish we have so we can pick up the other languages.
Every beta tester with access have all Languages to download but non of us is in this beta program. Im sorry but if no tester is to found and willing to give us the languages we cant provide it cause no access to it. If it will be to found on the net we post it here.

I keep my eyes on it and hope someone post all other languages cause WiNBETA so selfish and only did the English version download instead of selecting, as by vista the 4 gig size and download all languages so that people can select by the very first torrent already which language file they want and not just english. I found now never ending requests in the other languages. As soon anyone can provide a torrent or link to it please post here for build 3300 ptb, japan, arabic, german,... version.
