WSUS 3.0 SP2 beta now available

Today the WSUS product group launched the WSUS 3.0 Service Pack 2 beta program over on our Connect site so if you want to get a head start on testing and evaluating this Service Pack then you’ll want to make your way over there and download a copy today.  WSUS 3.0 Service Pack 2 addresses a number of product features and fixes and includes the addition of support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.  Just remember that you have to be a registered Connect user and logged in or you won’t see the download being available.
