The official press release came out today and Tom Rizzo followed up on the Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog. The name itself doesn’t probably mean too much (except that the MOSS acronym will no longer work – MSP2kX anyone?). The other important piece of information in the release is the general release timeline:
- Exchange 2010 will be the first product in this lineup, entering beta for customers to download today. Exchange 2010 will become available in the second half of 2009.
- Office 2010 — including Office Web applications, SharePoint Server 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010 — will enter a technical preview in the third quarter of 2009 and will release to manufacturing in the first half of 2010.
