FIM 2010 R2 is now available.  Customers with FIM CAL with software assurance now have access to these major improvements which can save them time & money. Just download the new code from your volume licensing site.

For IT Pros that want to try it in the lab… Pull it down from your TechNet or MSDN subscription or download an evaluation version of FIM 2010 R2.

My favorite features of FIM are the self service tools. Administrators can empower users (via policy) to self-remediate identity issues – including identity management, group membership, smart card, and password reset functions.
