Windows Intune next release to be available on October 17, 2011

Microsoft has announced that the next release of Windows Intune, which includes the new features and updates of the July 2011 beta, will be available on October 17.

Windows Intune brings together Windows cloud services and a Windows 7 Enterprise subscription to help businesses simplify PC management and security, while getting the most of a modern operating system.

Some of the features included in the next release:
Software Distribution: With this release, administrators can deploy most Microsoft and third-party updates or applications to PCs nearly anywhere over the Internet.
Remote Tasks: IT can remotely perform the following tasks on Windows Intune managed PCs from the administration console: Full scan, Quick scan, Update Malware Definition, and Restart.
Read-Only Access: IT pros and partners can give select administrators read-only access to the administration console so they can view PC information as needed, but not perform any configuration tasks.
Enhanced Reporting: Create hardware reports based on new hardware filters for common hardware characteristics. Additionally, you can create and save report parameters to make it easy and efficient to run a report again in the future.

To get this next release as posted in Windows Team blog:

Current Subscribing Windows Intune Customers: Your service will be automatically upgraded in the few weeks following October 17; no action is required of you. Two weeks prior to your upgrade date, you’ll see an alert displayed in the Windows Intune administration console indicating the exact date and time when your subscription will be upgraded.
New Windows Intune Customers: Sign up on October 17 to receive the latest version immediately.
Beta Customers: The beta service will conclude on November 17. After this date, you will not be able to access your beta account and all account data will be deleted. We highly recommend that you remove the client software and restore computers to their pre-beta state.
