MSDN Release Notes -- October 2012 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This release contains updates made to protocol documents since the last release.

    MSDN Table of Contents changes:

    The MSDN Table of Contents for Windows Protocols no longer groups specifications into "MCPP," "WSPP," and ".NET Framework and Other Protocols." All specifications now appear under the Technical Documents node.  Specifications, which contained program-specific content for MCPP and WSPP, have been unified, with only a single technical document appearing for each.

    The following documents are new in this release:

      • [MS-AZOD]: Authorization Protocols Overview
      • [MS-SSEAN]: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) AUTH Extension for SPNEGO
      • [MS-WPO]: Windows Protocol Overview

      The following document has been removed from this release:

      • [MS-DRDM]: The content of [MS-DRDM], which described the management of directory replication in Active Directory, can be found in [MS-DRSR]. [MS-DRSR] now contains the full content for directory replication.

      The following document has been moved to the Open Specifications Archive node:

      • [MC-IISIAQ]: Internet Information Services (IIS) IAQ AdminRPC Protocol

      The following documents have been moved to the SharePoint Products and Technologies Protocol Documents node:

      • [MS-FPSE]: FrontPage Server Extensions Remote Protocol
      • [MC-FPSEWM]: FrontPage Server Extensions: Website Management Protocol
      • [MS-WDVME]: Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) Protocol: Microsoft Extensions

      The following known issues exist in the October 2012 release:

      1. Underscore characters are not always visible in code in the PDF files depending on the magnification selected by the user. Those characters are present in printed versions.
      2. Information in a table row may split across two pages.
      3. Table borders are not always visible depending upon the magnification selected by the user. Borders are present in printed versions of the PDF.
  • Cross-protocol links are only functional when the PDF files for the protocols are in the same folder.

    Note: Links in the PDFs do not resolve in Adobe Reader 9 because Adobe has changed the default setting for view mode in Adobe Reader 9. To access links, perform the following procedure:

    1. In Adobe Reader 9 and Adobe Reader 9.5, go to the Edit menu and click Preferences.

    2. In the Categories list, click Documents.

    3. Under PDF/A View Mode, change the selection from Only for PDF/A documents to Never, and click OK.

    Additional details on changing the setting can be located via the Adobe help site.
