I’ve just read on the Microsoft Office 2010 Engineering blog that a release date has been set for SharePoint 2010! To business users SharePoint 2010 will be available on May 12, 2010. For consumers it will be available for download and purchase in June.
Here’s an extract from the blog post with the important bit:
For businesses, we will launch the 2010 set of products, including Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010, and Project 2010 worldwide on May 12. To find out more about the Worldwide Business Launch, visit http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/businessproductivity/proof/pages/2010-launch-events.aspx.
Update: Arpan Shah has also announced the intent to go to RTM in April on the SharePoint Team Blog.
