IE7 to be Released Before the End of October.
The IE blog has just announced that Redmond will be releasing IE7 for download before the end of this month, but according to the Security Fix blog, the long-awaited update could be released as soon as tomorrow as part of the infamous "Microsoft's Black Tuesday".
Last week, Security Fix mentioned that Microsoft intends to ship 11 patches tomorrow, including a "high-priority update." According to a post on the company's IE blog, that high-priority update could be IE7, a long overdue upgrade to IE 6 that includes new security features and other enhancements that most other Web browsers have long possessed. A Microsoft spokesperson declined to say whether IE7 would be released tomorrow, saying only that it would be released sometime this month.
