You should read through the list of fixes if you’ve got some time on your hands. But one of the most important fixes is a Web Access vulnerability issue. Read more about it here:

I’ve installed SP2 for a few customers and overall it has gone really well. No major issues have occurred. And, the client is a lot snappier, based on my experience. If you need help with applying the Support Pack, don’t hesitate to call us. We have accellerated upgrades that can help you apply the support pack within a few hours (backend only) and very little downtime. In fact, most people are surprised by how little down time we have when we upgrade them from 6.5 to 7 or even 6.0. We just did an upgrade from 6.03 to 7.01 IR1 2 weeks ago for a large school system and we had 5 minutes of downtime. Of course, this is an in place upgrade. If you need to upgrade your servers and do an across the wire migration it will take longer, but we’ve done one of those with as little as 30 minutes of downtime. The nice thing about that is you could do it during lunch, which we did.

Make sure you call us for all your upgrade and migration needs. We’d also be glad to help you with an enterprise level archiving solution. See our next post.
