Good morning! Microsoft Press publishes a monthly newsletter that might interest you. Each month we feature various short articles, editors’ picks, and, often, special offers. Here’s a sample article from this month’s newsletter:
Windows Internals, Fifth Edition, by Mark E. Russinovich and David A. Solomon with Alex Ionescu
Here’s a note from author David Solomon about the book’s release:
Windows Internals, Fifth Edition is finally out! Yes, this edition is later than we wanted, but updating this book to accurately reflect the many changes in the Windows kernel was a monumental effort of detailed investigations. The plethora of changes in the Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 core and kernel components are reflected in the book’s unprecedented 29.5 percent growth: from 976 pages to a whopping 1,264!
Key changes in the system include proactive memory management (Superfetch and its related technologies), mandatory integrity controls (part of the infrastructure for User Account Control), BitLocker full drive encryption, address space load randomization (ASLR), dynamic system address space, and support for virtualization (Hyper-V).
Work on the sixth edition, which will cover Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, is already under way. We hope to have it out in the first half of 2010. In the meantime, watch for an upcoming article in TechNet Magazine that will preview the kernel changes.
