The few bits I've managed to glean about Office 2010 so far have made it seem that SharePoint 2010 is the family member most likely to be tweaked the most. (The rest of the Office 2010 ("Office 14") suite sounds like it will be getting relatively minor updates.)
Exactly what will be changing in SharePoint -- Microsoft's integrated suite of six back-end servers that handle search, content management, collaboration, etc. -- with the next release is still somewhat murky. But at this week's Microsoft TechEd 2009 conference in Los Angeles, a few more details have begun to trickle out, via tweets, blog posts and other channels.
Here's what I've seen/heard so far:
Microsoft is taking sign ups for the invitation-only Office 2010 Community Technology Preview (CTP) test program, which kicks off in July, on the "Office the Movie" teaser site.
If you're following along on Twitter, there are two Office the Movie Twitter feeds, but only this one is real. The one which includes a tweet claiming that Microsoft is integrating Facebook and Twitter feeds directly into Word 2010 is a fake feed, Microsoft officials said on May 12. (Microsoft officials aren't denying outright they are integrating these Web 2.0 technologies directly with the next Office. The spokesperson whom I contacted declined to provide any information on any real or rumored Office 2010 features.)
Anyone else have any SharePoint 2010 features they know or are hoping make it into the final product?
