Some of you are likely still catching up on reports about the changes in Windows 7 build 7048, which only surfaced on torrent trackers last week. However, the leaks just keep on coming.

The most recent appearance is from build 7057, which bears a March 5th timestamp. This time it’s the 32-bit version that appeared first, though the 64-bit version will likely follow close behind.

More visual changes have been made in the new build, including more new wallpapers, several new user account icons and a new logon/shutdown background. Send feedback links have been completely removed and the version watermark on the desktop now reads “Evaluation copy” instead of “For testing purposes only.” The taskbar will now resize when switching to small icons, and the recent UAC problem has been addressed.

One other important note is that the expiration date of build 7057 is March 2, 2010 – nearly seven months after the official beta expires.

A NeoWin user has posted some fresh screenshots, and they certainly look legitimate. As with the last leak (or any leak, for that matter) exercise caution if you decide to download it
