Vista Performance and Reliability Pack coming next week?

Vista_logoI’ve only just read this on the Neowin site, so I have no other evidence as to the validity, but if true, this is good news for Vista owners. In the upcoming Tuesday patch event, Neowin says we’ll see a Vista Performance and Reliability Pack. The fixes revolve around many performance issues we’ve witnessed firsthand with our mobile devices, so this might speed things up a bit. Apparently all of the issues came from Vista users using the Error Reporting service, so Microsoft does indeed use that data for good use. After the jump is a full listing of the expected fixes in the Pack, but here are the ones that hit me from a mobile device standpoint:

    * Improves performance in bringing up Login Screen after resuming from Hibernate.
    * Resolves an issue where synchronization of offline files to a server can get corrupted.
    * Resolves an issue where a computer can lose its default Gateway address when resuming from sleep mode.
    * Improves the performance when copying or moving entire directories containing large amounts of data or files.
    * Improves the performance of Vista’s Memory Manager in specific customer scenarios and prevents some issues which may lead to memory corruption.

    * Improves performance in resuming back to the desktop from the Photo and Windows Energy screensaver.
    * Resolves an issue where some secured web pages using advanced security technologies may not get displayed in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista.
    * Resolves an issue where a shared printer may not get installed if the printer is connected to a Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 system and User Access Control is disabled on the Vista client.
    * Resolves an issue where creating AVI files on Vista may get corrupted.
    * Improves the performance in calculating the ‘estimated time remaining’ when copying/moving large files.
    * Improves performance in bringing up Login Screen after resuming from Hibernate.
    * Resolves an issue where synchronization of offline files to a server can get corrupted.
    * Resolves a compatibility issue with RAW images created by Canon EOS 1D/1DS Digital SLR Camera which can lead to data loss. This only affects RAW images created by these two specific camera models.
    * Resolves an issue where a computer can lose its default Gateway address when resuming from sleep mode.
    * Improves the performance when copying or moving entire directories containing large amounts of data or files.
    * Improves the performance of Vista’s Memory Manager in specific customer scenarios and prevents some issues which may lead to memory corruption.
