Forefront TMG 2010 Released

It appears that Microsoft has snuck out Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 on the quiet.  No fanfare, hardly any mention of it anywhere.  Andrew Nayler brought this to my attention on Sat, but I've not had time to blog it since...

It can be downloaded here and surprisingly there is no reference to Forefront TMG on the Microsoft Australia Forefront home page (maybe Microsoft Australia wasn't informed about the new release, either), however the US site mentions both Forefront TMG 2010 and also Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server which has also been released on the sly.

It appears that part of "The New Efficiency" (which is what Microsoft's releasing all their new server software under now in an attempt to let business owners know that Microsoft software is no longer a business expense, but an efficiency investment) is not letting people know about new software releases.  I just don't get how this is "efficient" in any sense of the word!  :)
