Visio 2010 Service Pack 1 Released

Yesterday Microsoft announced the availability of Service Pack 1 for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010.  This wave of releases includes updates to Visio 2010 and the Visio Viewer.  Here are the links for downloading:

Visio Viewer 2010 SP1



The updates to Visio 2010 include stability, security, and performance improvements.  SP1 includes the Cumulative Updates and Public Updates to Visio since RTM a year ago.

There are a couple noteworthy improvements in Visio 2010 SP1:

    Everyone on my team wants to be able to change the order of background images.

    We might have 10 or so to choose from for each of our pages, so it's a pain point that we can't put them in any order we want.

    what happened to ALL the templates that I had?  even you introduction example shows the BPMN template – I don't have that one; only the basics.

    For MS Visio 2010 Viewer there are languages where the installer of primary application (Visio 2010 Viewer without any service pack nor other updates) is not available but in parallel to this the download of SP1 Visio 2010 Viewer is available.

    How does it work?

    To which Visio installation must such SP1 installer be in such a case applied to?



    I'm looking for a professional to develop an Add-On for MS Visio 2010 to achieve ;

    I have an Excel sheets with different column to be imported creating different type of charts : Org. chart, Flow Chart, the common thing between these excel sheets that they all have a field for a path of an IMAGE…

    and in Visio 2010, you can't generate the images to be placed within the chart shapes automatically and for all the generated shapes!

    So i'm looking for an Add-On which will be used to do so and place the images from the pathes listed in the Excel directly into the corresponding Chart Shape, whatever the chart type is.!
