Change to WDK Build Environment in Win7 RC

I wanted to give you all a heads up. Because of security issues, we need to remove the ATL 2.1 and ATL 3.0 headers from the WDK build environment for the RC release of Win7.

I am somewhat hard-pressed to understand how there could be an issue in
a 10-year-old library that couldn’t be repaired in a few lines of code,
but that’s neither here nor there. My question is, will ATL 7.1
continue to be available?

We haven’t worked out yet whether we will ship just ATL 7.1, just ATL 8.0, or both.
