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