Wednesday Aug 14th 2013 by Developer.com Staff

The RTM update will arrive just one week shy of the one year anniversary Windows 8.

Spokesman Brandon LeBlanc announced that "Starting at 12:00 a.m. on October 18 in New Zealand (4:00 a.m. October 17 in Redmond, Wash.), Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers on Windows 8 through the Windows Store."

No news yet as to whether Microsoft is planning to release the RTM update early to developers for feedback through MSDN and TechNet subscriptions.
