If you haven’t heard by now, Service Pack 3 for Unified Access Gateway (UAG) was released yesterday.  In addition to many fixes, this eagerly awaited service pack includes:

  • Added Support for new clients
    • Windows 8 and Windows RT
      Forefront UAG 2010 SP3 supports Windows 8 and Windows RT client computers using Internet Explorer 10 and Internet Explorer 10 on the desktop. In addition, SP3 also supports the following client applications running on Windows 8 and Windows RT:
      • Mail: the built-in Mail application on Windows 8 / Windows RT computers can be used to connect to Exchange servers published through UAG 2010 SP
      • Remote Desktop: UAG 2010 SP3 adds support for the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 8.0 client that is running on Windows 8
    • Windows Phone 8
      SP3 for UAG 2010 adds support for mobile phone devices running the Windows Phone 8 Operating System
  • Added client applications such as Office 2013 and Remote Desktop Client 8.0 (Win 7 SP1)
  • Application publishing of SharePoint 2013 and Exchange 2013

We’ve been testing this in the lab for a while now and our favorite is the Windows 8 support (especially since we’re all using Windows 8). 

So if you’re running UAG, you’ll definitely want to get Service Pack 3.
