MSIB v2.5 Released
Well, it's good to have another version of the Microsoft Solution for Internet Business available. This one has been anticipated for a while, now.

MSIB addresses emerging business models that have evolved from relatively simple structures of linked HTML pages to complex, feature-rich applications. MSIB provides content management, automates business processes such as selling and purchasing, and facilitates personalization and data collection for analysis. MSIB supports a range of deployment scenarios, ranging from government tourism portal sites with multicultural content to transactional corporate portal sites, complete with personalization, authentication, content management, structured catalog data, analysis, and retail checkout.
Updates for the new version include:
- Prescriptive guidance for deploying on Windows Server 2003
- Prescriptive guidance to also include BTS 2004 installations
- Support for recent Service Packs for underlying products (CMS, CS, SPS, BTS)
- A search provider for SPS 2003
- MOM packs for CMS and CS
