Generally newer builds are released as full iso's to be clean installed.
There may be bugs and security issues fixed with updates from time to time
but not like for a fully released product.

OK, new builds will be available only to MSDN, TechNet Plus and technical
testers - *with the exception of* RC1 which will be available to you guys.
Beta 2 (what you have at the moment) is feature-complete, which means they
won't add anything extra, but might have to take bits out.

From now on in, you'll just see minor tweaks, such as little icons in the UI
(the Personalisation menu looks all new and fuzzy!), performance tweaks and
bug fixes.

So I assume bug fixes will come through the windows updates or do we need to
go somewhere and download them when they are ready?
