Microsoft has launched the Windows 8 Release Preview. You can download full 32-bit or 64-bit ISO files of Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant that analyzes your computer. New applications has been included in this version which includes Bing Travel, News and Sports apps, as well as Gaming and Music Xbox apps that integrate with your Zune pass. Other updations like performance and usability updates such as increased personalization options for the Start screen, improved multimonitor support, refinements to the way people find and download apps through the Windows Store, and new Family Safety features has been done. Adobe Flash in the Metro version of IE10 is the biggest addition in it. Previously microsft has reported that there won’t be any plugin support on the Metro version of IE, which included the Flash Player and since it was going to be the only browser available on the tablet version of Windows 8. Microsoft has added support for the Flash Player in this Release Preview. Firstly Flash Player in IE10 is not a plugin but is actually built-into the browser. Secondly it is a highly stripped down version of the Flash Player, with features that are not useful on touch-based devices being removed. This signifies that you can watch Flash video on YouTube but you won’t be able to use things like the drop-down menus on websites as these things don’t work on a touchscreen. Thirdly Flash Player will only work on those particular websites which have been maintained by Microsoft. This all is done in the interests of preserving battery life. Microsoft will be unveiling Windows Upgrade Offer in 131 markets for consumers who purchase a Windows 7 PC between June 2, 2012 to January 31, 2013.
