Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack 2013 HAS BEEN RELEASED

imageMinutes ago, Microsoft has made available the updated version of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack.  There was an update last November that included updates to Application Virtualization (to App-V 5.0) and the introduction of User Experience Virtualization (UE-V 1.0).

Since November, there has been a lot of work on the next version of MDOP.  Read all about the announcement by Chris Hallum on the Windows Blog.

The biggest update is the availability of the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) 2.0.  In a nutshell, this update provides four key improvements:

  1. A Self Service Portal
  2. Integration into System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and 2012
  3. Compliance reporting calculation improvements
  4. Simplified Provisioning

Additionally, all of these products moved to Service Pack 1:  Advance Group Policy and Management, Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset, Application Virtualization, and User Experience Virtualization.
