At the beginning of the week it was reported that SP2 for Windows Vista would likely see an April launch to manufacturers. If you happen to be an MSDN or Technet subscriber then you will be able to download the first beta of SP2 from today. With that comes a few more details of what we can expect to find from the service pack. As is standard, any updates since SP1 will be bundled, but more interesting is what new features will be added. These include the improved Windows Search 4.0, the Bluetooth 2.1 feature pack and native recording to Blu-ray discs. The addition of Windows Connect Now should also allow you to set up wireless networks more easily. If you don't have a subscription, you can head over to Technet tomorrow and download the beta as part of the Customer Preview Program.
