Last night I took some time to go through my article HOWTO: Configuring a Office SharePoint Server 2007 Publishing Site with Dual Authentication Providers and Anonymous Accessto make sure everything still worked for RTM. While I did make a change here and there, everything was basically working for RTM already. I did add additional steps that I like to do now in the Enabling Anonymous Access section (basically adding a new Policy for Web applications granting an admin-level FBA account to the site collection).
In addition to testing the steps in the above mentioned article, I also recompiled and tested my WCM Custom Commands for STSADM.EXEagainst MOSS RTM… everything built successfully and all unit tests passed so it’s cool with RTM.
I also updated my WCM linkfest with 17 new and updated links! Some of the links are updates from Beta 2 & Beta 2 Tech Refresh to RTM (such as the MOSS 2007 RTM eval download, WSS v3 RTM download, .NET 3.0, & VS extensions for Workflow Foundation), but others are new articles & blog posts worth note… a few deserve special mention:
- Patrick’s WCM articles on MSDN… a MUST read for any WCM developer!
- Eliene Hao’s 7-part series on building workflows with Visual Studio for SharePoint v3… a fantastic read!
- Tyler Butler’s from the WCM product team experience on migrating his blog to a WCM site… good for those getting started building WCM sites.
There’s also an official OPML file maintained by Lawrence Liu containing SharePoint team blogs, individual Microsoft SharePoint bloggers, MVP bloggers, and some feeds on searching for SharePoint: SharePoint Bloggers (OPML).
