Welcome to TechEd Atlanta! For those of you unable to attend the event in person, we’d like to take a moment to introduce our Service Pack 1 release.
Service Pack 1 is on track for release at the end of June.
SP1 releases for both Office client suites and SharePoint server products will be made available. All language versions of SP1 will release simultaneously. Initially, Service Pack 1 will be offered as a manual download from the Download Center and from Microsoft Update, and no sooner than 90 days after release, will be made available as an Automatic Update.
SP1 will include many interesting changes. Across the client suites and server products, SP1 offers a sprinkling of improvements to make a strong 2010 release wave even stronger. During TechEd and beyond, teams on http://blogs.office.com will update their blogs with more specific details of 2010 Service Pack 1 contents.
There are far too many changes in SP1 to list here, but the list below is a sample of SP1 highlights to get things started. This is a list of things that you can do now that you couldn’t before, or things that are just better than they were with the original release:
Each product in Office and each Server capability area will have changes in SP1. Specific changes will be detailed on TechNet and in KB Articles. On release day, we will publish all associated KB articles on this blog for reference.
As we have discussed in prior blog posts, SP1 will also roll-up our Public Update and Cumulative Update releases to date. SP1 will include all of these fixes, and represent a milestone in the support lifecycle of Office and SharePoint 2010 versions. Below is the list of fixes to date for 2010 products.
TechEd Sessions for Office Client & SP1For TechEd attendees, make sure you stop into the Office booth to discuss our SP1 changes. Office, SharePoint, Project, Visio will all be represented there and will be happy to talk to you about the release. SharePoint has no specific session content dedicated to SP1, but they will be available in the booth to answer questions. Be sure to visit the SharePoint Team Blog for SP1 details as well. You can find the location and other information about TechEd sessions in the official session schedule. Here’s where you can learn more about SP1 for the client suites:

Will this fix the missing email notifications for IMAP in Outlook?
Will .NET framework 4 be supported with SharePoint 2001 SP1 ?
Did you fix the numbers getting cut off on left part of cell?
Any fixes to Business Contact Manager in SP1?
Will there be a slipstream version of Office Suite 2010 SP1 for apps like Word, Powerpoint etc. for TechNet and MSDN subscribers? Installing all the patches afterwards is a nightmare and a backward step from Office 2003. Having upgraded through 2007 and 2010 I hope that this gaping hole is being looked at.
Anything gonna be done to help speed it up, or should I say stop it from slowing down the system so much?
I second what was said by "Anonymous":
"May I add that, to support better other OS, Sharepoint web interface should have an "Upload new version" action for files."
This would be a huge help to the users at my company who have anounted iPad as the preferred mobile device, versus a laptop. Thank you.

If you have specific questions about fixes in a product, it is best to consult with those teams on their blog. (http://blogs.office.com). Each team can help you understand the changes they have made in the release.
I wish they would do something about the incompatibility between Access 2010 and Access 2007. It is really a pain and there is no way to set 2010 to be backward compatible.
thanks for info..
Are there going to be new language packs for SharePoint 2010 released in the SP1? Is there going to be Macedonian Language Pack release soon?
will this fix error User Profile Synchronization Service not start when install sharepoint on SQL cluster
Great news and congratulations. I am wondering how long it takes to implement these changes in an enterprise environment. Best regards,
Looking forward to the SP1 for SharePoint 2010.
Currently using two virtual web application servers hosting the main site collections and one virtual service application server hosting services for the farm linked to two (physical) clustered SQL servers (or equivalent from the SQL corporate cluster).
Is there a 'best practice' in deploying the SP1?
