Vista SP1 Release Candidate released

December 16, 2007

(thanks Slashdot)

Microsoft has made available the release candidate for Vista SP1, after a limited beta begun last September. Informationweek points out white papers telling business users that if they were waiting for SP1 to solve application compatibility issues, they needn’t bother waiting: SP1 won’t solve them, and in fact might cause applications to break that were running under Vista. Techworld outlines the hoops users will have to jump through to get SP1 installed.

ISA 2004 Service Pack 3 Released

May 2, 2007

Looks like ISA 2004 Service Pack 3 is available on the download site. Personally, I’m going to wait and see what happens from the early adopters before I even consider it.

ISA Server 2004 Service Pack 3 provides increased security, new troubleshooting options and tools available directly from the ISA Server Management console, new diagnostic logging functionality, and enhanced log viewer and log filtering options for ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition. In addition, this service pack adds support for publishing Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 with ISA Server 2004

This update fixes a problem in which a calendar item that is marked as private is opened if it is found by using the Search Desktop feature. The update also fixes performance issues that occur when you work with items in a large .pst file or .ost file.

(you heard me.. let me say that again)
