A new version of the FEP Definition Update Automation Tool is released. It contains a great new feature, that the Software Update Package containing the FEP definitions isn’t updated if there are no new Definition Updates.
With the old version the DP’s were always updated, so this will save replication traffic to remote locations.
Some more fixes:
- Removal of /RefreshDP switch, add new switch: /DisableRefreshDP
- Improved logic to skip updating the deployment package if no content change was detected
- Corrected the default update filter string so it will not retrieve superseded updates and enables functionality when custom updates published by System Center Update Publisher are present
