    "Some of the new features include a revamped Aero/DWM subsystem, and a completely overhauled and siginficantly less obtrusive UAP for all those that couldn’t stand the previous one. From what we have been told by Microsoft, the Time Zone bug that plagued previous builds of Windows Vista has been patched, and quite a few fixes in the Regional Settings and IME have been patched."





    I'm going to be installing it tommrow, I will report back!



    Many, many of the things you’ve reported in Beta 2 have been fixed. While we believe this build to be generally better than beta 2, it is an interim build and has not been through a rigorous test pass. Keeping that in mind we would like you to try it out, move off of Beta 2 and begin filing bugs against 5456.







    In addition to the many bug fixes you’ll find:







    · List View is back! Thanks to your feedback on this the shell team has added back this popular feature.







    · We no longer change the system clock when you set your time zone. We have removed this feature.







    · UAC behavior has changed a bit. You’ll find deleting things off the desktop to work much easier now for starters.







    The images posted first will be for x86 and x64 English. Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate are all in the image and can be installed with the appropriate product key. You will not need a new key for this build. Existing beta 2 keys will work.







    The Windows Driver Kit, Software Development Kit in addition to German and Japanese language versions of Vista are planned to follow shortly.

    I am a new tester to Vista, so please dont mind the rookie questions. I just downloaded Vista two days ago and my build is 5384, do I have to go through the whole reinstall, etc., or can i just upgrade to the latest build. The screenshots show the Aero Glass Flip 3D. Is this feature only available with the new build as I cnnot find it anywheres on my build.

    Welcome to the site, Aero is available w/ most of the builds cannot remember the exact build it started but anything newer then 5308 will have it. You can upgrade to 5465 if you want to, no need to reinstal.
