Been busy upgrading to SP2 on a couple of sites, and doing a lot of test of new stuff while my students are doing labs. No issues as of yet with sp2. However on codeplex I found some interesting stuff:
SPMessaging – Twitter variant for your sharepoint:
Windows Live Authentication – Actually works and is quite simple to implement
Powershell console in sharepoint – A perfect complement to the Powershell components of iLoveSharepoint
I have been working as a MCT for a while and though that it was about time that I wrote a course of my own. I selected a topic near to my heart and I ended up writing a MS50248 Implementing and Managing Microsoft Online Services which will be availiable from Microsoft within 3 months at Microsoft Courseware Library. The course is already set for delivery at the CPLS I work, but other CPLS might also be delivering the course as its a official Microsoft Courseware Library course and availiable to all for delivery.
Lots of new stuff in the Office SP2, dont forgett to update your clients also!
* Two new STSADM commands, one to check compability with vNext of Sharepoint and one to analyze ECM sites for errors.
* Lots of improvements to rendering of webparts, almost everything works in Firefox now.
* Better performance when using page varations
* Forms authentication for SPD
And lots lots more.. read the full details here.
