System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) Preview 2 is now available. If this is your first time looking at the SCUP Preview check out the announcement for Preview 1here.
In SCUP Preview 2, the update catalog format has been enhanced to provide a better experience for users when consuming large update catalogs. Improvement include:
Indexing for quicker imports of previously imported catalogs– Catalog producers can now index their catalogs. This will allow users to import large catalogs containing few new updates more quickly.
Inclusion of signing certificates within updates catalogs– Catalog producers can now include signing certificates with their updates catalogs. This enables users to add the certificates to the trusted publishers list during import so that approval prompts will not block publish operations.
