Microsoft has bunged the first post-RC1 build of XP to testers.

The word around is that Build 2520 doesn't include many changes, and the code has just been cleaned up for bugs.

In an email MS made clear that "this build is NOT RC2".

XP gold code is expected mid-August, and the full thing should go on sale on 25 October. ®
