Microsoft Project Server Infrastructure Update

The long awaited fixes to Project Server 2007 and Project Professional 2007 have been released today (July 15, 2008). Microsoft is calling it an infrastructure update rather than a service pack. I suppose this is because it covers a things like sharepoint and other office server infrastructure rather than a specific application.

What ever it is called, Project Server and Project Professional users will find a lot to be happy about. Among the fixes for Project Server are:

  • Timesheets and My Tasks stability and usability improvements
  • Queue Management user interface improvements
  • Logging Tracing improvements
  • Project Server performance improvements
  • Project Server 2003 to Project Server 2007 migration fixes
  • Database performance improvements to enhance the cube building process and Project
  • Professional Save/Publish scenarios

Project Professional gets the following fixes:

  • Cost Resources calculation fixes
  • Improved Custom Fields stability
  • Improved local Project Cache stability
  • Fixed Excel Import problem

Many of these are quite welcome. A document with details can be found here:
