Hello everyone! As Office 2010 nears shipping, we are starting to plan Office 15. One area that we are considering improving is our SQL Server support. Based on what I’ve heard from the community, that would be most welcome. Note that we are very early in planning, and considering many possible areas of investment, I unfortunately can’t commit to any actual improvements at this time.
Según las últimas noticias, Microsoft Office 2010 beta ha llegado al millón de descargas en solo 2 semanas.
La evidencia del trabajo en Office 15 no ha sido la única, en el blog de fred morrison(blog dedicado a SharePoint 2010) un empleado a Microsoft dejó un comentario en donde dice que Office 15 será lanzado el 2013. (source)
Couple of things on office 14’s workflow you mentioned above:
- Office 14 (or sharepoint 2010 to use your words) wont be supporting .NET4 and WF 4.
- Office 14 still uses workflow foundation 3.5 and .net 3.5 and you wont get the same benefits compared to when you use only .net 4 solutions in custom development.
- The workflow platform for WF 4 was indeed rewritten from the ground up and is a much better platform, however, we will have to wait for office 2013 (or office 15) before we can use this for sharepoint development.
- WF4 does provide some out of the box sharepoint activities, but these are very different from SharePoint’s workflow and is build by the WF team, rather than the Office 2010 team.
Ya que Microsoft le tiene miedo al número 13, la suite de oficina podría ser lanzado a finales del 2012 y posiblemente no se llame Office 2013.
