    I did google to find release notes and found this:

    Official "release notes" from the Ongoing Beta newsgroups...

    "This version of the Microsoft Security Essentials [...]
    contains some enhancements and compatibility fixes to facilitate a
    seamless upgrade experience to future versions of Microsoft Security
    Essentials."

    Though as far as I'm aware, an updated engine was recently released as well, of which users are reporting much faster scan times.

    kemical, you got the same email that I posted in another thread, "Which Anti-Virus do you use". I got it this morning. MS Connect sends me invitations whenever a beta is in development.

    Yes, that's why I included the Connect link so that others can access the same service if they should wish too.
