“SharePoints” for the week of April 26th, 2009

Finally, I am on vacation, but wanted to share a few tidbits of information this week from the Microsoft world that should be of interest to my readers.

MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0 Service Pack 2 Released on 4/28/09
That is correct, the next service pack was released for SharePoint, with many updates and fixes and updates in the ways of performance, compatibility, and additional functionality. There are several pages at Microsoft for this information, but Joel Oleson has put together the best post I have seen so far about aggregating information for WSS SP2, so I will send you over there for download links and other information: WSS & MOSS SP2 is Available – 5 No Brainer Reasons to Install

MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0 SDK 1.5 Now Available
The next release of the MOSS and WSS SDKs have been released! Here are links to both the online versions and the downloadable CHM versions.

Online Versions
Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK

Downloadable CHM Versions
Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK

Windows 7 RC Now Available
And finally to end my “SharePoints” for this week, Windows 7 Release Candidate is now available through MSDN.

Hope you have found these useful! Back to vacation for me…

    MSDN couldn\’t handle the load of users trying to download Windows 7 RC yesterday (yes, just like when the Beta was released), so downloads of it may be spotty for the next day or two. Just a head\’s up.
