Next Tuesday, 1/22/08, we are adding a new product family to your
WSUS server – Expression. The Expression product family will include
updates for all Expression products, including service packs, optional
updates, and critical or security updates. For additional information
on Expression Studio Products see: http://www.microsoft.com/expression/.
Tuesday, 1/22/08 we will be publishing the first Expression Media Service
Pack (SP1) to the Microsoft Update Site, and making it available
(depending your on settings ) via Automatic Update, and to Windows Server
Update Services (WSUS).
We recommend WSUS admins having Expression deployments in their corporation;
select this new product family to synchronize associated update classifications
of your choice. Additionally, Expression updates will be available from the
Microsoft Update Catalog http://catalog.update.microsoft.com.
We are also excited to announce a new product named Silverlight,
is being made available to Microsoft Update site and WSUS customers
Tuesday, January 22nd! The Silverlight product family will include
installers and updates for the Silverlight browser plug-in for
Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, enabling simplified
delivery of media and rich Internet applications that blend animation,
audio/video, and interactivity. To learn more about Silverlight 1.0
visit the website at http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight.
The Silverlight 1.0 installer will be published to the Microsoft Update
site and available to WSUS servers. It will be applicable for both Windows
XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 systems. For users visiting the Microsoft
Update site, Silverlight 1.0 will be published as “optional” and available
to download and install interactively.
WSUS Admins, this new product family will appear in the „Products and
Classification“ selection dialog of your Microsoft Windows Server Update
Services (WSUS) server, so be sure to select it if you want the Silverlight
1.0 installer to synchronize down to your server. The Silverlight 1.0
installer, will be classified as a “feature pack” for WSUS (so you’ll need
to be sure you have that classification selected too), and will require
EULA acceptance before approving to targeted managed clients. Additionally,
Silverlight 1.0 will be available from the Microsoft Update Catalog
Die ersten Bilder und weitere Informationen gibt es in den nächsten Tagen !
