Neosmart Technologies has mentioned that Windows XP SP3 build 3205, will include features backported from Vista. SP3 was supposedly released to beta testers on Sunday.
Some of the new features include a kernel module with several encryption algorithms accessible by third party developers, a new activation module that doesn’t require a product key, and Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature included with Windows Vista, that inspects client computers before they access a corporate network.
After the announcement that Windows XP would get a 5 month reprieve, it seems that Microsoft is trying to prolong XP’s life as much as possible. Hardly surprising, considering the lukewarm reception Vista has received from both corporates and end users alike!
