Microsoft Updates Servers With Latest Search Features
Microsoft has released three bundles of fixes and new features for its server products.
The "Infrastructure Updates" apply to Office SharePoint Server 2007, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Search Server 2008, Search Server 2008 Express, Office Project Server 2007 and Office Project Professional 2007.
The update for the Office Servers contains more enterprise search features, including a federated search capability which allows content in other repositories to be indexed. Also included is an administration dashboard and other performance updates, Microsoft said. The added features were already in Search Server 2008 and Search Server 2008 Express.
Microsoft also said it has fixed some problems with content deployment for the Office Servers as well as Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Content deployment is the term for moving files or documents to other servers.
