SharePoint Service Packs (the definitive list)

Great list of resources below from Mitch, an Information Worker Architect for Microsoft in New York:

On 12/08/07 we released SP1 for the Office System.  This includes updates to both Office 2007 and MOSS 2007.

We also released the IFilter Pack yesterday (12/18/07).

I have included links to these service packs and other past service packs that are of interest to anyone using MOSS.

I have not included links to prior hotfixes for MOSS and Office are included because, they are included in SP1.

In many cases there are separate downloads for x86,64bit, and Itanium releases.  In the list below, I didn’t include the links for all platforms for all of the updates.  All of the updates listed below and for the other platforms are available on http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/

IFilters

Microsoft Filter Pack

This download will install and register IFilters with the Microsoft Windows Indexing Service. These IFilters are used by Microsoft Search products to index the contents of specific document formats.

Overview

This download will install and register IFilters with the Windows Indexing Service. These IFilters are used by Microsoft Search products to index the contents of specific document formats. This Filter Pack includes IFilters for the following formats: .docx, .docm, .pptx, .pptm, .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb, .zip, .one, .vdx, .vsd, .vss, .vst, .vdx, .vsx, and .vtx.
Because Windows Desktop Search (WDS) consumes IFilters from Windows Indexing Service, the IFilters will be automatically registered and available for use by WDS.
To register these IFilters with a specific Search product, please see the associated KB article below:

The Filter pack provides a new ZIP IFilter and includes the OneNote IFilter.  The other IFilters are already included in the MOSS installation.  If you are using WSS v3 (or any of the other products listed here), you can now install this Filter pack to get the IFilters without having to install the applications that create these files.

The IFilter the XPS file format is available in the XPS Essentials Pack.

XPS Essentials Pack Version 1.0

The Microsoft XML Paper Specification Essentials Pack, Version 1.0 (XPS Essentials Pack) contains components that enable you to view, generate and index XPS Documents.

MOSS

You can get a more complete description of SP1, including a list of issues that were fixed, in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 936984: Description of the 2007 Microsoft Office Servers Service Pack 1.  This KB article has links to other KB articles that describe bugs that were fixed.  I don’t believe that this list of bugs is complete.  There are many issues that I know that were fixed in prior hotfixes that were not described in public KB articles.

It is strongly recommended that you read the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 945013 on how to deploy server updates before attempting to upgrade to SP1.
