Over on the Project Support blog I just added a new post for issues with Odata giving “The content of the data feed is not valid for an Atom feed”, and creating projects from list items giving a '”Sorry, something went wrong error. Project Online- Using reserved custom field names breaks Odata feed and create projects from lis . This can occur for Project Server 2013 on-premises as well as for Project Online, although most Odata users will probably be affected in an online environment.
I’ve updated the original blog post with this information – but in case you just get the RSS feed which had an error I wanted to make sure this got out there…
While I was putting together an internal e-mail on the ‘birth’ of SP2, weighing in at 450MB, playing on the recent big news from my homeland, I noticed that the SharePoint 2010 SP2 was actually smaller than the Project Server one (437 MB) – even though the Project one, was described in KB2687452 as being included in the SharePoint one – KB2687453 – whereas in fact the Project one is a roll-up (as the title of the download infers) and contains the SharePoint SP2. Might have missed this for a couple of days without the Royal birth…Sorry for the confusion – we are getting the KB corrected.
And if you think the whole baby reference is just a ploy to get search hits then if that were the case I’d have made some lame excuse to mention the Kardashians as well (whoever they are).
Pleased to announce the arrival of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Project 2010, Project Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010. Full details over on the Project Support blog at Project 2010 and Project Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) Released.
The SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 also includes the Project Server 2010 SP2 *** Update - Looking at the file sizes and descriptions - I suspect the note on the Project Server SP2 KB article is incorrect and should read that 2687452 Includes 2687453 - and not the other way around - so if you have SharePoint and Project Server you just need the Project Server 2010 SP2 - 2687452 *** – and a full list of updates in Excel format can be downloaded from this link Microsoft Office and SharePoint 2010 SP2 change list. These contain all the fixes from June 2011 Cumulative update through to the May 2013 Public Update, as well as extra unreleased fixes which include improvements in stability, performance and security.
I’ve updated the Project Server CU posting for June 2013 over at http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/06/14/microsoft-project-server-2007-2010-and-2013-june-2013-cu-announcement.aspx but thought it also worth a shout out here. The recommendation is also that anyone who installed the earlier patch in the few days it was available should now install these updated patches. They have new KB numbers too. These updates address the issues found with Project Server and timesheet submission as we as some SharePoint issues that caused the withdrawal of the roll-up package and other SharePoint fixes.

Already posted this link over on the Project Support blog – but wanted to be sure no one missed it. The brand new Project Online getting started articles are at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-server-help/get-started-with-project-online-HA102858793.aspx and these walk you through the Project Online sign-up, add people and create projects. Thanks to Sonia and all the folks in the review cycle who helped make this happen!
