Next week, on April 28th,  Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Microsoft Office System – including Project and Project Server 2007 will be released, along with SP2 for all the other office applications, including Office SharePoint Server and also WSS.  We have a couple of webcasts organized on the morning of the 29th and the evening of the 30th which hopefully allow us to cover most time zones.  Join Adrian Jenkins and Christophe Fiessinger as they give an overview of this important release, best practices for deployment and also time for questions and answers.  As a reminder the key fixes in this release will be:

Project (desktop)

  • The scheduling engine, Active Cache, and Gantt charts all have improvements.
  • There is additional reliability with earlier versions of the .mpp format.

Project Server

  • Better memory management in the queue service.
  • Performance to certain database table indexes is improved.
  • Resource plans, build team, cost resources, and the server scheduling engine have improved.

Details of the webcasts follow:
