Hi WSUS Admins,
We are planning on releasing two updates related to the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1. Both of these address customer feedback problems that have been reported back to us.
The first is for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 that enables Firefox browsers to use ClickOnce technology. We will be releasing an update to the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 in order to make the extension compatible with future versions of Firefox and enable the uninstall button of the add-on. This update is applicable to all machines with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.
Additional information about this update can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/963707
We will also be releasing a revised .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Family Update this week for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP with the .NET 3.5 SP1 language packs separated from the original update. While the detection logic has been updated, there have been no changes made to the binaries shipped. Therefore, machines that have previously installed the .NET 3.5 SP1 do not need to install this again. Machines with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed and without .NET 3.5 SP1 language packs, will receive the latter as a separate update.
