SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 Released Today

Today’s Announcement

After a long wait, SharePoint 2010 SP1 is finally available.

What’s New in Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2010

SQL Denali Support

Service Pack 1 introduces support for SQL Server Code Name “Denali”.

Shallow Copy

An improvement to the Move-SPSite PowerShell cmdlet, which means that when you move a Site Collection where you’re using the SQL Remote Blob Store for file storage, they can stay right where they are; it’s only database content (such as List, Library and other structure/metadata related content) that gets moved from one database to another.

Caveat: Shallow Copy does not support the Out-of-Box RBS provider (the Filestream Provider).

Site Recycle Bin

SharePoint 2010 SP1 Site Recycle BinMuch awaited, and much appreciated, is inclusion of the new Site Recycle Bin. Before SP1, if you deleted a site, it pretty much stayed that way. Lists, Libraries and Documents got into the Recycle Bin, but not Sites or Site Collections. You could install the free plug-in from Microsoft’s SharePoint Governance site, but it merely archived deleted sites rather than helping those who causally deleted the wrong site.

Storage Space Allocation – Storage Metrics

SharePoint 2010 Storage MetricsIn SharePoint 2010 RTM, Microsoft took away the Storage Management page (storman.aspx).

It’s back now with a new look, showing the top 100 biggest files or containers across a site collection.

Cascading Filters for PerformancePoint Services

A nice touch for Business Intelligence users: filters in PerformancePoint Dashboards can now cascade their values from one to the next.

Browser Support

Service Pack 1 brings support for Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) and IE8 Standards Mode, and now Google Chrome too!

Cumulative Updates

SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 includes all the (non-redacted) Cumulative Updates since the RTM:
