Microsoft has used Patch Tuesday to update IE to version 11.0.1
One of the updates released by Microsoft on Patch Tuesday brought several improvements for Internet Explorer 11, while also disabling Enhanced Protected Mode on all computers.But as Neowin points out, the KB2888505 update bumps the Internet Explorer 11 version to 11.0.1 on Windows 8.1 devices, as Microsoft implemented a series of improvements in the latest build of its browser.
The company says in the description of the MS13-088 bulletin that the new IE11 release fixes a number of bugs, including those affecting HTTP connections, ActiveX controls and XMLHttpRequest objects.
The Internet Explorer 11 patch is being delivered via Windows Update and only seems to be aimed at Windows 8.1 computers. We’ve deployed all available patches on several Windows 7 machines and Internet Explorer 11 sticks to the same build number as before.
This particular version was released last week, so you can still download Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 manually.
