21 changes to look for in the Windows 7 Release Candidate

There's more to the Windows 7 RC than just wallpaper

By Ed Bott

Windows 7 Build 7048, which leaked out of Microsoft's labs last week, isn't the long-awaited Release Candidate (RC), but it does include changes that were checked in after the beta release and will be a part of the RC when it's ready. So far, the new wallpaper (shown here) is getting most of the attention, but there are many more subtle tweaks as well. Here's a preview of 21 changes - some big, some small - that have been added since the December 2008 beta release.
