I am happy to announce that there is a new System Center Updates Publisher planned for release later this year. I cannot provide further details beyond this for now, but will be detailing the release in full at the Microsoft Management Summit 2011 (March 21-25) next month. I am presenting in a total of 3 different sessions where you can learn more about SCUP and specifically the upcoming release.
My Sessions BA18 Introduction to System Center Updates Publisher 2011 (Monday) – Learn about the new upcoming release of SCUP. I will walk through all the new changes/features along with many demos.

We made the announcement at MMS 2010 that starting with Adobe Acrobat and Reader X products, their updates will also include SCUP catalogs for easy enterprise deployment. Today I am extremely happy to announce that Adobe has released these two new SCUP catalogs in conjunction with their first updates to the Acrobat and Reader X product lines. With these new catalogs, enterprises will be able to stay up-to-date with both products in the same manner they do with Microsoft Updates when using System Center Updates Publisher with System Center Configuration Manager.
The catalog links are below and will be added to our Partner Directory (inside SCUP) very soon. http://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/SCUP/Acrobat10_Catalog.cab http://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/SCUP/Reader10_Catalog.cab
