Service Pack 2 and the June Cumulative Update

A follow-up from last week's post about the release of SP2 for Office and SharePoint 2010: The updates from the June Cumulative Update (KB 2855357) will not install on SP2. The August Cumulative Update will be the first to do so. However, the June Cumulative Update includes some changes that are not available in SP2. If you need those changes, and SP2 is already deployed, you will need to wait until the August Cumulative Update is released and install it to get the changes from June. If the updates from June are already deployed but SP2 is not, our recommendation is to wait until August is available and then install the updates from August and SP2 in any order.
