SharePoint Server Subscription Edition Goes GA

It’s that time of year! SharePoint Server Subscription Edition has gone into General Availability! You can download the installer to try it out. You can also find the public announcement at The SharePoint Community Blog.

There are some really exciting features in SPSE, including certificate management and deployment across the farm, OIDC 1.0 support, resolution in the People Picker of user objects synchronized into the User Profile Service, TLS 1.3 support on Windows Server 2022 (and Office Online Server also supports Windows Server 2022), N-2 upgrade support (i.e., upgrade from SharePoint Server 2016 directly to SPSE), and one of my favorite, the SharePoint Management Shell is no longer required! SharePoint PowerShell has been converted into a PowerShell Module from the legacy Snap-ins. This means you can launch a standard administrator-elevated PowerShell window instead of using the SharePoint Management Shell and start using SharePoint cmdlets right away. One of the other new major features is a new remote BLOB storage provider, allowing you to store documents on a file server via SMB instead of in the SQL content database – this scenario is designed for archival/low-use documents. Lastly, Windows Server Core support! This means we no longer need the Desktop Experience to run SharePoint Server – always use Core where possible.

More to come about SPSE!
