In a Windows blog posting yesterday, Microsoft announce that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will include only minor updates, many of which will be previous updates already delivered through Windows Update.

The company did not announce a timeline for SP1 but did say that once it was released it would be delivered through Windows Update and be available on Microsoft Download Center for download as well.

Windows 7 is the latest version of the Windows operating system which was released last October.
