SharePoint 2007 Service Pack SP2 has been released

Update 29/04/2009 – The Service Pack 2 for SharePoint 2007 (that is, WSS 3 and MOSS 2007) has been released to the general public. You can get the Windows SharePoint Services one here and the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server one here.

There are lots of changes (Change Log WSSChange Log MOSS) so please ensure you test this in a development environment first before rolling out to production.


The release date for SharePoint 2007 SP2 has been set at the 28th April (2 weeks from today). There’s a write-up of the biggest changes here – http://blogs.technet.com/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2009/04/16/service-pack-2-for-the-2007-microsoft-office-system-due-to-ship-april-28th.aspx – The thing I’m most happy about is the fact that they are releasing the bugfix list as a spreadsheet again. Nice, very nice. Whack it in a SharePoint site, index it and you have a “That was fixed in Service Pack n” lookup feature for clients who are still on RTM (and who are in an unsupported state).

Sweet! And information that’s much more useful than the name of the next version of SharePoint. Honestly, I’ve lost count of the number of blog entries proudly proclaiming that the next version of SharePoint is going to be called… wait for it… SharePoint Server! <Commence Sarcasm>WooHoo! I’ll sleep better tonight!</Commence Sarcasm>

Anyway, keep an eye on this blog to be notified of the release http://blogs.technet.com/office_sustained_engineering/ (Or you could diarise it I suppose…)

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
