    Folks, we are not allowed to announce dates for pending or upcoming product releases or updates. However, we try to be the first to make the announcment after given the all-clear by the product team. So check back often. Thanks for your patience!

    Are there any additional steps necessary to federate with Outlook.com now that this is supported. I checked the links mentioned above but didn't see anything.
