When is EPO 4.5 Patch 1 being released?

Does anyone know when McAfee is going to release EPO 4.5 Patch 1? I came across a knowledge base article that mentions that a certain issue was fixed in Patch 1 and to install it. Below is the information from that article. This article is giving me the impression that the patch is released but I can't find it under our grant.

Corporate KnowledgeBase ID: KB66766
Published: August 24, 2009

Environment
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Offline Virtual Images 2.0

Problem

Failure to open the Help page

Accessing Help in ePolicy Orchestrator 4.5 produces a blank window if you have checked-in the extension for Offline Virtual Images (OVI) 2.0. No Help information is displayed.

Solution

This issue was first resolved with Patch 1 for ePO 4.5. Install the latest available Patch.

Found this in KB66288

This issue will be resolved in ePO 4.5 Patch 1, which is tentatively expected to reach Managed Release by the end of Q4 2009.

Log into the McAfee download site with your grant number.  EPO 45 with patch 1 included is available for download.  This package allows you to do a new install with Patch 1 already installed, or upgrade your existing EPO 45 install.

That's correct. One of the main issues addressed in Patch 1 is support for Windows 2008 R2, which meant that the Patch 1 package has to be a full installation package.

Ok, but the settings done are't lost after that?

No, any existing settings are preserved.

If you run the patch 1 package on a machine with an existing ePO installation, it upgrades it to 4.5 Patch 1: if you run the patch 1 package on a machine with no ePO installation, it performs a clean install of 4.5 Patch 1.
