The Engineering Windows 7 blog have a long list of changes that we will see in the Release Candidate version of Windows 7. There are far too many to list here, but it is worth taking a look at.

Here is the link:

Apart from the performance improvements, Microsoft are also going to include support for .MOV files... which means no more quicktime :D

Customers loved the increased range of formats natively supported by the Windows 7 Beta, but noticed areas where they wanted broader support. For example, one was unable to seek to a specific spot in the video in Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center for AVCHD content that was imported from a digital camcorder. We’ve addressed this. Also, while the support for video from some digital cameras worked great, we also got feedback about supporting a broader set of devices out of the box. We’ve since added support for Windows Media Player to natively support the .MOV files used to capture video for many common digital cameras.

If only it played .rm files too, that would be perfect! You can download an application called "real alternative" that does a good job instead of the RM Player.

I'm not sure, but if they are hoping to get RTM in Sept then RC should be in the next couple of months :)
