Good information Scott. Thanks. I'm sure we will here soon when this stuff
hits the streets.

Wow that was quick.  Thanks for the info.  Lol, I remember when "SOON" was
like a manta in MS OS betas.  It was a running gag in the newsgroups for XP
and 2000 before that.  I can't even remember for anything prior to that
anymore.  
 
Yes I do, but as far as the ones currently posted on Connect, the RSAT tools
are definately not final and missing some tools (DNS comes to mind) which
are listed in the documentation and won't install on Vista SP1 RTM unless
you do a command line boogie workaround.  As far as the GPP preferences that
are posted, I get the feeling those aren't quite final either.  Some testers
have been playing with them this week and have found that there are issues
with the filtering not working correctly.

My understanding is that they will be available soon. This question was
asking on the GP MVP list and the product team's response was "soon". If you
have a connect.microsoft.com account you can get them now, though its not
clear to me that they are RTM.

Anybody on the list "in the know" as to whether Group Policy Preferences
Extensions and RSAT tools have RTM'ed?  It would make sense since Server
2008 and Vista SP1 are now RTM.  Not asking for when they will be released
or where to get them now, just if they are finalized or not, so shouldn't be
any sort of big NDA issue.
 
Thanks,
 
Scott Klassen
