Yesterday the product group released the February 2011 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2007 product family. The Februray 2011 CU for SharePoint 2010 will be released in a couple of days.
The KB articles are not yet available (as usual it will take a couple more days to get these through the required release process) but the fixes can already be downloaded.
As soon as the KB articles are live they can be found at the following locations:
- KB 2475886 – WSS 3.0
- KB 2475885 – MOSS 2007
- (delayed) – SharePoint Foundation 2010
- (delayed) – SharePoint Server 2010
- (delayed) – SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server
As you see there is a separate Full Server Package for SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server which simplifies patching of this common installation.
The Full Server Packages for February 2011 CU can be downloaded here:
- Download WSS 3.0 February 2011 CU
- Download MOSS 2007 February 2011 CU
- Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 February 2011 CU (delayed)
- Download SharePoint Server 2010 February 2011 CU (delayed)
- Download SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server February 2011 CU (delayed)
After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
For the 2010 Server Products it is sufficient to install the SharePoint Server 2010 package as it includes the SharePoint Foundation package.

Concerning your comment: "The February 2011 CU for SharePoint 2010 will be released in a couple of days."
Not to bug you, but your posting was on Feb 23, it's Feb 28 now (been a couple of days). I am wondering if there is an exact date for the release of the SharePoint 2010 Feb 2011 CU? Of if you might have a link of where to find it. I have checked the SharePoint Update Page (technet.microsoft.com/…/ff800847.aspx) with no joy. Thank you for any information you can provide.
there can never be an exact date as it depends on implementation and testing results.
I will post an update as soon as the CU has been released.
Thank you for your quick response. I will keep my eyes on your blog postings and hope that the release will be soon. I am told the February CU contains a fix for an issue with SharePoint Workflows that I am encountering.
