The WSUS 3.0 Beta 2 Program is drawing to a close!
Effective Friday, 1/19/07 the beta 2 bits and feedback submission will be offline on the WSUS 3.0 beta Connect site, as we drive to complete our Release Candidate milestone (RC).
Of coarse, we will still be on the newsgroups and encourage all beta peer
help to continue out there, as will ours. The only thing we're doing is
pulling the bits from the Connect site download page and cutting the ability to submit feedback via the Connect
page on the Beta 2 build. All will be back for RC and in the same
The beta 2 feedback, newsgroup posts and suggestions have been tremendous
and very valuable in helping us to prioritize and understand our product's
issues and areas for improvement from our customers' and partner's
To wind down the beta 2 program, the important points and dates are:
1. On Friday, 1/19/2007 The Beta 2 bits will no longer be available for
download from this site. (The RC bits will be when they are released).
2. Feedback submission will also be taken down on the Friday, 1/19/07 -
however the read only capability will remain so we keep an archive of the
feedback. (This will be reactivated at RC for bug submission with new
mandatory fields and attachment info required for submitting).
3. Beta 2 test deployments will continue to have access and synch update
content from MS servers until 30 (thirty) days AFTER the release of the RC
4. RC release is scheduled to release 1st Quarter, Calendar Year 07 - as we
get closer you will see further announcements & information.
The WSUS 3.0 team thanks all beta 2 participants for their valuable participation in this beta,
and look forward to your continued feedback and input when the RC releases!!!
