This is exactly what Wikipedia mentions about the Feb 22nd Windows 7 SP1 Release for public:

Just a caution for you all, download it only if you want to test it but don’t go for it if your computer is working fine without any problems. Because as I said already the sp1 contains all the latest updates that you already have in the computer if the automatic updates is ON.
