BES 5.0 SP3 Documentation Leaked

BES 503 service pack notes The good stuff keeps flowing from the BES 5.0 SP3 beta for IBM Lotus Domino documentation leaked by Al There are no crazy new features I see in this BES though there are quite a few fixes and additions that BES admins will appreciate.

Al did a great job of summarizing the changes:

  • BES admins can choose to make smartphone software updates optional for their users
  • The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service is now end-of-life. The BES 5.0.3 setup application removes the MDS Integration Service when you upgrade a BES
  • End of support for Microsoft SQL Server 2000
  • Support for more IM servers, including Microsoft’s Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and Lync Server 2010
  • Support for Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 virtualization platform
  • New IT Policies
  • Users have the option to rollback optional software updates
  • The default settings for media file downloads have changed to allow users to download larger amounts of content using the BlackBerry Browser or through an HTTP connection using BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
  • When a meeting organizer receives a meeting confirmation email message via BlackBerry, or a request for information email message, the email message includes any comments that the meeting participant added
