The Windows 7 Pre-Beta Build will be available to PDC 2008 attendees from Tuesday 28th of October (tomorrow) but Mary Jo Foley over at ZDNet has got some info on what features we can expect to see:
Device Stage – a central location for customers to more easily interact with devices, ranging from printers, cameras, cell phones, media players, etc. Device Stage will only recognize “Device-Stage-enabled” peripherals.
Action Center – a self-diagnosis feature to help users troubleshoot problems with their Windows 7 systems
A new Animation Framework for customizing animations
New Task Bar & Shell Integration
Multi-Touch & Gesture Recognition
There isn’t much more info on these features as of yet so roll on tomorrow!!
