Some of the major features for me would be –

  • Site Recycle Bin kind of enhancements for the administrators to recover the site collections and sites without restoring the content databases (Same as Recycle Bin for Lists, Libraries, and Documents)
  • Internet Explorer 9 “Native” support for Office Web Applications and SharePoint
  • Office Web Applications Support for Google Chrome

For organizations adopting IE 9, this is no brainer update. For IT administrators, this is no brainer update which would enable the self-service site restorability reducing number of support calls and self-service site collection restorability without going through backups.

Keep up the great work, Microsoft.
