  • <p>This is pretty cool. Eminentware has released an Extension Pack for WSUS which adds a ton of new features</p>

  • <p>Not related to this post, but could the WSUS team post some information on the XP SP3 update detection issues?</p> <p>Currently SP3 cannot detect several updates through WSUS/MU/WU. &nbsp;The ones that I've noticed (IE7 was fixed yesterday) are .Net Framework 3.0 and Group Policy Preferences. &nbsp;I also believe that some security updates are not being detected as SP3 doesn't detect the April batch, but it's highly doubtful that these made it into SP3.</p>
