John Krakowski, SAP, provided this ASUG Webcast last week.  Note since the SP5 is not released yet that things are subject to change, and the usual legal disclaimer applies.  These are my notes.  SP05 is planned for mid-year release, according to John.  I am thankful to both John and the ASUG Special Interest Group who sponsored this, as I believe this was covered in February’s SAP Insider Admin 2012 but I didn’t attend these sessions.
