SharePoint SDK 1.5 (April 2009) Released!

  • Comments 3

Greetings, SharePoint Developers!

 

We are excited to announce the availability of the latest updates to the online MSDN Library + the downloadable SDKs for both MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0!

 

The April 2009 (1.5) Update is available both online and as a download.

> Download the MOSS SDK 1.5 <

> View the MOSS SDK 1.5 Documentation on MSDN <

 

> Download the WSS SDK 1.5 <

> View the WSS SDK 1.5 Documentation on MSDN

 

Which SDK do I need to download?

If you are only writing code that utilizes the Windows SharePoint Services platform, you can download the WSS SDK.  However, if you want the superset of all documentation and samples, you should install the MOSS SDK, and then you’ll get all the platform information as well.  You don’t need to download both, but you will need to uninstall all previous versions before installing.

Note   The SDK 1.5 downloads are full releases that include all previous tools and documentation.

 

What’s New in this release?

The SDK updates in 1.5 include:

  • New version of the Microsoft Business Data Catalog Definition Editor tool
    • Bug fixes for field truncation issues and parameter limits.

·         Updated documentation files:
What’s New in the MOSS SDK 1.5 Documentation
What’s New in the WSS SDK 1.5 Documentation 

While you’re updating your SharePoint development tools…

You can also update the Visual Studio Extensions for SharePoint Services.  Here is the link to the latest CTP: Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, v1.3 - Mar 2009 CTP.  The extensions were updated on 3/17/2009.

 

Don’t forget to download the user’s guide:  version 1.1

 

Please keep sending us feedback!

We want to make sure you have all the information you expect to find in the SDK.  Please reply to this blog entry with comments if you have a request. And don't forget to use the Community Content Wiki on MSDN to annotate the SDK documentation online with your own insights or additional code samples, remarks, etc.  Just look toward the bottom of each page online or click the Add Content... button in the top-level menu on MSDN Library pages.
