Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 out now « Ars Technica
IE11 for Windows 7 Globally Available for Consumers and Businesses « IE BlogInternet Explorer 11 is now available for Windows 7 users, bringing Microsoft's fastest, most secure, and most standards-compliant browser to the company's most widely used operating system.
The browser is almost—but not quite—identical to its Windows 8.1 counterpart. On Windows 8.1, the browser supports the DRM-in-HTML standard Encrypted Media Extensions, and the Windows 8.1 version has a more restrictive security sandbox.
As with Internet Explorer 10—and in a change to older versions of Internet Explorer—version 11 will be rolled out as an automatic update. The first users to get the browser will be those with the Release Preview installed. It will then be rolled out to other Windows 7 users in the coming weeks or months.
Windows 8 users who want the new browser will have to upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) is available worldwide in 95 languages for download today. We will begin automatically updating Windows 7 customers to IE11 in the weeks ahead, starting today with customers running the IE11 Developer and Release Previews. With this final release, IE11 brings the same leading standards support--with improved performance, security, privacy, and reliability that consumers enjoy on Windows 8.1—to Windows 7 customers.

Anyone know if this is going to fix all the issues in IE 10? so many activex/ java based issues were had that we had to always put ie 8/9 browser mode on or use a different browser what a royal pain!
Any work on if we need to block this through automatic updates yet?
What a total pain - why oh why, do Microsoft persist in rolling out totally unwanted and seemingly at best poorly tested updates? I have IE10 blocked currently, suppose it's going to be necessary to block 11 as well. Still having irregular issues with IE9 failing to pick up the proxy proxy. Grrr!
Never did deploy IE10 due to all the problems it has, just got it on a few machines. As we're on Exchange 2013 CU2 I'm tempted to get testing on this, hate sticking with a long-in-the-tooth browser.
had IE10 running schoolwide since the summer. Only had issue with two websites both of which are resolved with compatibility mode (and both of which were used by single users in offices as they were admin based sites) what's all the fuss about?
Will do some brief testing but no doubt i'll replace IE10 with IE11 quite happily. Running chrome alongside which is also the default browser anyway so IE is only a backup browser these days.

Chrome is now on every machine in the district as a result. Thank God it works well with GPO.
mentioned it in another post but those with Google Apps for Education will have to upgrade from ie9 to either 10 or 11 as it wont be supported.
taken from here : Google Apps update alerts
We would like to remind you of the Google Apps browser support policy, the set of guidelines for Google Apps services interoperability support. We support the latest version of Google Chrome (which automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser is available) as well as the current and prior major release of Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. Each time a new version of one of these browsers is released, we begin supporting the update and stop supporting the third-oldest version.
Google’s test plans have been adjusted to now stop all testing and engineering work related to Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), as Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) was released on 17 October 2013. End users who access Gmail and other Google Apps services from an unsupported browser will be notified within the next few weeks through an in-product notification message or an interstitial pages with information about modern browsers and how to upgrade to them.
Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government
We just deploy both IE and Chrome although Chrome is the one that I normally see opened on all the the staff laptops.
Has anyone that is on the South West Grid had any issues with staff proxy on IE 11?
In our testing when IE 11 does an automatic sign-in with a cached password not all of the tabs are unfiltered, only about 2 of them. The rest are still all filtered.
Can you turn off the automatic sign-in feature on IE 11 and have it prompt for a login box like IE 10 does?
Cabinet files for integrating IE11 into Windows 7 SP1 images:
Users of non-English editions of Windows will also need to integrate the relevant language packs:
Internet Explorer 11 Language Packs for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2
Before you integrate IE11, you will need to integrate five updates that are required for IE11 to work properly in Windows 7 SP1:
