3. Improves performance for Wi-Fi after resuming from sleep mode.
4. Updates to the RSS feeds sidebar for improved performance.

NOTE: TweakTown benchmarks for the previous Release Candidate SP2 demonstrated only a very marginal increase in overall performance compared to Vista SP1. Some areas showed slower boot and slower HDD performance under SP2. Performance enthusiasts should wait for new benckmarks for this final release, and then make a decision based on resultant performance and if new features are needed.

When available, please report any new benchmark links for the final Vista SP2 (not RC1 SP2) in this post.

yep, it's up on Technet, just uploaded today.  It's a 1.3GB download, though.  holy crap!  Granted that download is for x86, x64 and i64 for both Vista and Server 2008

I have Vista SP2 RTM now installed.  It appears to be working fine so now it comes down to vlite being able to produce a slipstreamed version from my original media.  I already have a slipstreamed SP1 dvd and I know that SP2 requires SP1 as a prerequisite to install.  Hopefully vLite will be able to use as a base the install media I created for SP1 and just give me an updated build for installation!  The one issue I was hoping to find a listing somewhere is what this Service Pack contains.  Information such as a bug fix catagory listing such as was available for SP1 and also the numbers for defect fixes that indicate how many are only available through the installation of SP2?  Vista just got a bad rap to begin with and I'm sure SP2 will be the "magic" for it - XP was also extremely unpopular for its initial adoption as well.  Windows 7 and Vista as well are based on sharing of fundamental systems: the driver model for example is unchanged and this allows for using Vista drivers in Windows 7 and perhaps even from Windows 7 to Vista.  This commonality makes things easier for manufacturers.  There won't be a big-bump moving from Vista to 7 compared to moving from XP to Vista driver model changes.  Even sticking with Vista once 7 is available ins't a bad thing because 7 sharing this core functionality makes things work similarly which means more compatibility.

I thought Win 7 was going to be RC'ed on May 7'th or so?  They're pushing it out earlier now? (Win7 = Vista SP2 :) ).
