Somewhere around the end of June (so like now) Microsoft will release Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2010. A Service Pack is usually a very important milestone in the life cycle of a Microsoft product, and none more so than an SP1! The first SharePoint 2010 Service Pack rolls up tons of patches and fixes of the past year and adds a few significant features.
So how does this impact your Quest Software Tools for SharePoint?
First off, rest assured, your Quest Software tools for SharePoint will be truly SP1 ready shortly after SP1 is released. We will test it right away and if we find issues, we will release fixes pronto, within 30 days.
However, we anticipate that for the most part they will continue to work without any necessary release fixes; service packs rarely remove functionality. To be on the safe side, once the Service Pack is officially released we will do some very quick testing and let you guys know of any issues. Sometimes a last minute change creeps in so it’s hard to tell 100% from the Beta builds of these service packs if we will be completely fine after release. Look for more details here on this blog on www.quest.com/community as SP1 rolls out.
Now there are some features in SP1 that are interesting as well.
