Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) is planned for release on the Microsoft Connect site for an open Beta at the end of May 2009. I wanted to reach out to our customers with a sneak peak at what is coming in SP2. This service pack release is focused on enabling support for new scenarios in out of band management and adding Windows® 7 and Windows Server® 2008 R2 support for operating system deployment and site server roles.
We would love your support in our open Beta this spring. Download it, try it out, and send us feedback via the Microsoft Connect site. We want to hear from you!
At a high-level the following is planned for the release:
The Technology Adoption Program (TAP) is now open for nominations and customers can register to participate through the Open Beta site on Microsoft Connect. Look for future news about SP2, including when it becomes available and more details about what is included in the release, on Microsoft Connect and the Configuration Manager Team Blog.

Just wondering is this a full new version, or is this an actual SP2 (like XP SP2 type thing) that can be downloaded seperately, and can be used to patch my environment. The only "beta" I can see on the connect site is a full install of SCCM with hotfixes already applied. I don't particularly want to reinstall my lab environment, but I may have to if this is the only way to get the SP2 hotfixes.
Is service pack 2 now available and safe to download, or is it still in the beta version? Is there any documention on potential issues and/or features?
