Updated SharePoint 2010 Certifications for SPServices

I just went through all of the “value-added” functions in SPServices and updated their certifications for SharePoint 2010. They were really behind the times and many were incorrect. Almost everything works great in SharePoint 2010, though there are a few functions that have some caveats.

I wanted to make these updates as part of getting ready for releasing v0.6.0. This version will be the most significant overhaul of SPServices to date, with lots of great enhancements. You can see the current status of things by looking at the v0.6.0 release in the Issue Tracker at any time. I may defer some of the remaining enhancements to v0.6.1 because I want to get v0.6.0 out there to eliminate the known issue with jQuery 1.5.

Here are the certification icons and what they mean:

Certified for SharePoint 2007This icon indicates that the function is Certified for SharePoint 2007. There have been no reported issues, and the function works well in all of my testing.

Not Tested with SharePoint 2010This icon indicates that the function has not yet been tested with SharePoint 2010. If you see this icon for a function, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the function won’t work with SharePoint 2010, it means that I can’t say either way because I haven’t done any testing. If you try the function, please let me know what happens, whether positive or negative.

Works with Caveats with SharePoint 2010This icon indicates that the function has been tested and works with SharePoint 2010 but that there are some caveats. In each case where you see this icon, you’ll also see explicit details of what you need to consider or watch for to use the function with SharePoint 2010.

Certified for SharePoint 2010This icon indicates that the function is Certified for SharePoint 2010. This means that, to the best of my knowledge, and based on my testing, the function works fine with SharePoint 2010. As with SharePoint 2007, your mileage may well vary, depending on what types of customization you have done.

Thanks to Michael Greene for his great work on these icons and the project logo.
