I’ve been held to NDA for the past couple of years. What a relief and joy it is to be able to speak openly about the great innovations in SharePoint 2010. This list is a mix and match of what I consider the big announcements, I’m sure this list could grow tons if it was taken at a feature by feature level for SharePoint 2010 new features, but I’ve tried to group these by what I consider investment areas that pay off and help justify both playing with the public beta and justify upgrading when you have the chance. There are a lot of others who are making their lists… here’s Ketaahns SharePoint 14 list. (I found this link after I was done, and it’s amazing how close the lists are…)
If you missed the Keynote or missed SPC all together, the first thing I ask you to do is to step through these videos which include the SPC09 keynotes as well as SharePoint 2010 customer highlights and SPC opening video.
