The SharePoint team will be descending on both of these so you won't want to miss either one. I'll be in DC next week if anyone wants to connect at SharePoint Best Practices and then in Vegas in November for Connections. I'm planning to do 5 sessions at Connections so if you want to sit through a whole day of my bad jokes, come join the fun!
I'll have to post something on CMIS as well but I haven't had time. It's an important effort in the ECM market and the new CMIS web page on our Internet site at http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2008/sep08/09-10FirstWebPR.mspx and http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint/capabilities/ecm/cmis.mspx
Plus, we released our first cumulative update for SharePoint. I'll post another entry on what we're trying to do with these but they are a big step ahead for both us and our customers/partners.
