WebCenter Patch Set 2 Released

As part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g R1 Patch Set 2 ( a new WebCenter patch set is available for download as well. This release has a couple of new features and a large number of bug fixes. New features include:

  • Microsoft Office Integration: Oracle WebCenter integrates with the Microsoft Office shared document management functionality for working with Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files that belong to a personal space or group space. This functionality is available in Microsoft Office 2003 and later, and the backend content repository must be Oracle Content Server. For more information, see What You Should Know About Integration with Microsoft Office.
  • Message Boards in Group Spaces: In a group space, the Message Board feature provides a means of viewing and posting messages within the scope of the group space. Every instance of a Message Board task flow shows the same content: messages left by authorized users who are members of the group space. The group space Message Board leverages page service permissions as its permission model. For more information, see What You Should Know About Message Board.
  • Support for Microsoft Office Communications Services 2007 as the backend service for Presence and Instant Messaging. For more information, see Working with the Instant Messaging and Presence Service (IMP).
