As much for me as anyone else, here’s a round-up of SharePoint 2010 (Beta) resources to date.
The Public Beta should be available in November. I’ll bet the product group were trying to sync the Beta with the SharePoint conference but slipped. There would’ve been some wringing of hands about that.
Mary Jo Foley is suggesting RTM will be in May or June 2010. In my experience of running Early Adopter Programmes for SharePoint 2003 and 2007, that timing sounds about right.
