SP1's improvements, which were in direct response to customer complaints, concentrated
on performance, stability and security across desktop applications and servers.
Some of the improvements include support for deploying AJAX so developers can
better create customized Web parts for users; better management capabilities
so IT admins can better consolidate or repartition site collections across SharePoint
databases; performance improvements to Outlook 2007, particularly in working
with PST/OST files; and feature improvements in performance and stability in
working with Project 2007 and Project Server 2007.
"We think SP1 provides the stability and performance improvements that
key in on customers' productivity concerns, and beefs up security precautions
in order to stay ahead of the latest threats from malicious software and other
risks," said Reed Shaffner, Microsoft's Office product manager. "Crashes
are one of the most frustrating experiences customers have, and the team worked
hard with SP1 to make our products more stable."
