After a few hard weeks of busy coding & testing we have now shipped the following components:

        Jumpstart 2012 1.2

        Service Market 5.8.4

        Application Manager 4.4

It is with great pleasure that I write these words. Although that we have had an enormous mountain of problems with this release, not uncommon when we have to deal with new operating systems and new ConfigMgr versions, we just started the upload of Jumpstart 1.2 to the FTP. This means that Jumpstart 2012 1.2, Service Market 5.8.4 with and Application Manager 4.4 are now finally released.

I would like to thank the entire team that has been involved, as well as all the Atea Consultants that have taken their time to send in feedback and comments. Thank you! We hope that the hard work involved in increasing the quality of the solutions will start to pay off. It has been a real pleasure to see the technicians in the field actually starting to deploy real installation of Service Market and Application Manager running in their customers environments. Building on ConfigMgr 2012 R2 gives us a platform to add features and functionality in order to automate and extend the client deployment space.

I would also like to point out that this is the 1.2 release and that we are committed to continuing the work with further developing Jumpstart 2012 with Jumpstart 1.2.1. In between we will release minor updates to the scripts and products involved as required by you, the technical teams in the field.
