Sharepoint Services v3

In addition to looking at Project Server 2007 (which looks overly complicated… and still required IE for full-featured web access… bleagh!), I have been eyeballing STS3, the next version of Sharepoint.

Very Cool!

Here are some first impressions/highlights:

  • Default template for Blogs and Wikis
  • The Wiki resembles MediaWiki (it uses the same [[link]] syntax.  The Blog looks much like any other Blog, but with the in-line posting and editing features that make Sharepoint so easy to use.  The addition of Single sign-on and Directory Services integration make the service even easier to manage.
  • Directory lookup tool for groups and users (you no longer need to know the NetID or department group name)
  • Incoming mail support (errgh… this is going to get ugly… people will want this feature and it does not appear to work without Exchange!)
