The Configuration Manager documentation library (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680651.aspx) has been updated on the Web and the latest content on the Web has Updated: April 1, 2010 at the top of the topic.

Additionally, the Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 Release Notes are updated to clarify which versions of 64-bit Windows Server 2008 are subject to a known issue when using WAIK 2.0 for operating system deployment.

This month's updates incorporate customer feedback and updates to the supported configurations documentation.  There are fewer updates than usual because we've been busy with MMS preparation, Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Beta, and Configuration Manager v.Next Beta 1!

We do value customer feedback and try to incorporate it when possible.  Although we can't promise to make the docs perfect for everybody, we are committed to continual improvement.  So, keep that feedback coming, and feel free to contact us about anything related to the documentation by using our usual address of SMSDocs@Microsoft.com
