Brad Smith, Microsoft's senior vice president and general counsel, said that the company is on track to ship SP1 this summer and later noted that the release will ship on or after August 28. XP SP1 includes a UI change that lets end users and PC makers hide access to five key middleware components: <ul><li>Internet Explorer. <li>Outlook Express <li>Windows Media Player. <li>Windows Messenger. <li>Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine.</ul> Based on feedback from beta testers, PC makers, and the DOJ, Microsoft will make additional changes to XP SP1 to make the product's middleware-hiding feature "even more clear to users."
