No. I downloaded it and just stuck it on the FTP so its untested. Someone will have to do that for me and hopefully post some screenshots too.

The screenshots look awesome I'll have to try it after I finish grabbing Vista 5536 from MSFT's servers...

BTW, if you're interested in getting this, but for some reason don't want to use Andy's excellent server, there's a torrent floating around, on one of those torrent sites that starts with Mini ...

Wow, this build looks amazing - I'm always interested to see what they did after 4074 and before they cancelled the "first Longhorn". Thanks for this

This build isnt that good tbh, I ran it a few months back and its buggy as hell, plus half the stuff isnt even there. But it looks pretty.

I'm impressed with this build, a lot faster then 4074... no sbctl, I haven't tried the DWM reghack yet.

Slightly OT, is the release-a-week program going to be extended to BetaArchive?

We can do "release-a-when-we-find-a-new-release" But other than that we won't have a release-a-week.
