Jie Li, Microsoft's Technical Product Manager for SharePoint announces:
"Office Service Pack team announced Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 would be available on April 28th. It provides many fixes and performance improvements, as well as some new features. Also with the new service pack, Internet Explorer 8 will be added into browser support matrix as level one, and Firefox 2.0 and 3.0 as level two. We recommend every customer to start planning their patch window to apply this service pack. Please look out for more details on April 28th."
To firms planning to apply the patch remember to test the patch installation in the UAT environment and test. But lets be honest, what ICT firm has the time and resources to firstly maintain a UAT environment, to test patching and to document patching results? So my advice if you don't have this budget, and given the difficult economic times is to hold off on patching until user stories come in on the Internet and to at the very least test on a VM for the time being.
