A new week, or a brand new world for all of us using or working with Endpoint Management.

ITMS 7.1 is released on SolutionSam.

Here are the usual pl.xml data for this, oh so important, release:

  • MD5 Hash = c71a6b5af6e846ef2be3ada6ba0ddca3
  • FileSize = 36,346,208 (35MiB)
  • Modified Date = 2011-03-06 10:04

So much has changed on this release that the diff (standard, not even a unified version) is 45 MiB.

Now time to scrape the beta from my 2008 64-bit R2 server to install the real thing.
