SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 Released

sharepoint2010logo_thumbThe SharePoint product team released Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2010 yesterday, along with service packs for a lot of related Office products.  In the past its been a good idea to patch SharePoint and your client applications at the same time to maintain the highest level of integration between SharePoint and the desktop.  I would recommend continuing to follow that procedure. 

But this SP1 is more than just a bug fix. It includes some new features and functionality for SharePoint, including:

  • A Site Recycle Bin – Recover accidentally deleted SharePoint Sites and Site Collections.
  • Shallow Copy – The ability to move site collections containing Remote Blob Storage (RBS) elements from one content database to another without having to physically move the RBS Blobs.
  • StorMan.aspx – The return of a Storage Allocation page where you can see how much storage is being used by major portions of your farm.

You can find links to the all the Office related service packs, including SharePoint here:

Make sure you remember to apply SP1 for all the products you have installed!
