Announcing the Release of WSS 3.0 SP1 and Office SharePoint Server 2007 SP1

Availability and additional information about SP1 for MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0:

… I’m excited to announce the release of SP1 for WSS 3.0 and Office SharePoint Server 2007.  Before you install the service pack there are some very important things to understand.  In this post I’ll try to provide you with the resources you need to be successful in updating to the latest service pack.  Please do NOT simply drop to the bottom and find the links and download and install directly on your production environments.  It is essential that you understand the appropriate guidance and test out the patch in a separate test environment.  For this purpose we have put together a special SP1 page on TechNet to guide you through the process.  The more you know the better prepared you’ll be for updating your environment.

Overview and What’s Included

For information on what’s included in the service pack view the Announcing WSS 3.0 and MOSS SP1 article from TechNet.  This information will be important from both a business and technical perspective to support installing SP1.  The KB “Description of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 1 and of Windows SharePoint Services Language Pack 3.0 Service Pack 1” in addition is a must read.  It includes a link to a list of fixes included in WSS SP1.  For Office SharePoint Server 2007 SP1 another KB has been posted with a downloadable Office Servers list of fixes.

Note: For SharePoint Server 2007 environments, WSS 3.0 SP1 should be installed before SharePoint Server 2007 SP1.
