Is there a Windows 8 Ultimate edition?

If so, when will it be available?

I just installed Windows 8 Professional Release to Market and I see in the Windows 8 System properties that there is an option to ""Get more features with a new edition of Windows."

Or is Windows 8 Professional the highest available Windows operating system available?
