Welcome to a special edition of the SharePoint Community Newsletter. To celebrate the preview launch of Office 2013 last night, which we live blogged, we are dedicating this entire Newsletter to nothing but SharePoint 2013!

Watch the press conference launching office 2013 to the world, led by Stever Ballmer.
Once you have consumed the wealth of information out there already, it would be great if you could share the features you like in the new version from the point of view of an IT Pro. Discuss on LinkedIn.
As with the other two discussions (aimed the other roles) we thought this would be a great way to get some insightful discussion brewing about what you like from a devs point of view. Discuss on LinkedIn.
If you are an End-User what are your must have features in the new version? The introduction of EAI Workflows into SharePoint designer ? Discuss on LinkedIn.
