According to a mail I received from Mickeysoft today the Release Candidate for Windows Update Services is finally publicly available. New features since Beta 2 are -
- Replica mode for WSUS server hierarchies, making them easier to manage.
- SSL connections between WSUS servers and clients, providing an even more secure end-to-end environment.
- Automatic Update policy to allow non-administrators to receive update notifications, offering greater flexibility in organizations where logged on users are commonly not administrators.
I haven't had the time to test it so no comments from me (Except that I and many of my customers are eager to get the FINAL product) - but check it out for yourself by registering for download here.
