Many thanks to rjb for sending us this news on the SharePoint Services Beta, as informed by The Microsoft Office System Team:
Important! Advance Notice for Windows SharePoint Services Beta 2 Technical Refresh Upgrade
Upgrade from Beta 2 to Beta 2 Technical Refresh
- Microsoft will upgrade all Windows SharePoint Services hosted sites from Beta 2 to the Beta 2 Technical Refresh, beginning June 17th. Your Windows SharePoint Services hosted site will be unavailable for approximately 48 hours.
- We expect to have sites back online by end of week.
So, if you want to continue using SharePoint you must first update Office to the beta 2 refresh when available, reportedly upto a 400mb download in full (not one for you guys on dialup then ;))
