I appreciate all the info in your post and have another request as well.

Is it possible to have something similar with a comprehensive list of all the current Altiris beta and release dates.....somewhere all in one place ?

For example, I think Mobile and new Patch are both in beta now and expected to be released in May but I can't really seem to verify that anywhere for certain.

Thanks again.

I wish I could navigate to a page that had all Symantecs Documentation in one place and this is as good as it gets.  Always on the look out for new ideas and ways of helping my day to day duties as a Techy and having a repository like this is exactly what I need.

Cheers Jonathen

Missing the link to Altiris Software Management Solution 7.1 SP1 from Symantec™ User Guide. The pre-SP1 docs are listed, just not the new ones. They can be found at: http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3918

Version 7.1 SP1 of the Altiris Patch Management Solution is expected be released soon.

The 7.1 SP1 release of the Patch Management Solution does includes several great new features that have requested by customers, such as expanded support for commonly used third-party Windows applications, support for service packs and non-secuirty related updates from Microsoft, etc. 

This release of the Patch Management Solution is not typical of a service pack release, as it contains substantially more new functionality that that typically found in a service pack. 

The primary reason that this release has not been heavily publicized is because Symantec does not do full product launches for service pack releases from a marketing perspective.  This particular release is flying even a bit more under the radar than a typical service pack release, because it was not released at the same time as the other solutions in Altiris IT Management Suite 7.1.
