Office 365 ‘version 2013’ is just round the corner…
If you have not allready, sign up and try out the new version of Office 365, included is the new SharePoint online with lots of news. The ‘Metro’ or ‘Windows 8’ look is there, toghether with a bunch of other useful features.

Below is a totally incomplete list of the new features:
(Keep in mind, this is all based on the Preview and can be changed and removed at any time)
-The new design/branding framework.
-SAP/Duet support built in
-The Application Store

This is just a Quick overview of the new Service Application – Work Management Service Application in SharePoint 2013.
- The Work Management Service Application provides functionality to aggregate tasks to a central location.
- Users get the possibility to view and track their to-dos and tasks.
- Tasks can be cached to a users personal site.
- Tasks can be aggregated from Exchange, Project Server and SharePoint.
- Based on ‘Provider model’ so that other systems can be integrated in the future.
Thats it, more info will become available over time, I will hopefully have time to dive deeper into it then.
In Conjunction with the release of the SharePoint 2013 preview and Office 15 and all the great releases this summer, Microsoft also saw fit to release some info on the support for PowerShell in SharePoint in Office 365 more commonly known simply as SharePoint online.
Have a look at this link:
Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Online
What I regard as a bit cryptic regarding this release is this:
Applies to: SharePoint Online Preview

I have not spent time figuring out how to get access to a Preview, I’ll rather just read up on the CMD’lets and wait for the support to become general availability.
The list of CMD’lets is limited to just a few, but as a starter, it is a huge leap forward compared to no support, which was what we had before.
