Here a quick overview of what I learned through blogs after the first day of SharePoint conference 2009.
Every new release has some changes in the naming.
WSS 4.0 becomes SharePoint Foundation
Groove becomes SharePoint Workspace
No more table layout.
No more table layout!! Personally I’m excited about this. It was the first thing technical end-users came complaining about.
“UI implementation is no longer table-based… it’s pixel perfect (via CSS) “
Solutions are now sandboxed.
Everything in the WSP is deployed to a special repository managed by Central Administration. This might impact your custom solutions.
New service model.
SharePoint 2010 offers a new feature around rating content
(no word on lookup over site collection level)
New SharePoint Designer.
I never was a fan of SharePoint Designer. The new version seems to go into the right direction. Hopefully it’s more stable and faster as well.
