If you follow my blog posts then you know that I mainly write about UDI so I would like to highlight a few features that are available in this release of MDT 2012 UDI.

  • MDT 2012 provides support for both Configuration Manager 2012 and 2007.

  • Completely rebuilt designer and wizard

  • Designer allows for adding multiple instance of a page or a new page to the page library allowing for keeping everything in one config file

  • Designer allows for dragging and dropping pages from the page library to a stage in the flow, or within a stage to arrange the order of pages, allowing IT Pros to easily design their deployment experience and configure a page once and use in multiple places

  • New wizard and designer pages:
  • Support for both packages and ConfigMgr 2012 App Model applications from all of UDI’s components

  • AppInstaller which ties what users select from the application page of the wizard to what is deployed to a primary user of a machine allowing for user centric computing
