Microsoft has released the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2010 solution accelerator version 5.0.1641.0. A Solution Accelerator for operating system and application deployment. MDT 2010 supports deployment of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 in addition to deployment of Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP. The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit functionality is positioned between Windows Deployment Services (WDS) and the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) on one side and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 R2/R3 on the other side. Both System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and MDT actually build on the foundation of WDS, WAIK and ACT to extend their basic functionality. Using MDT in combination with SCCM even unlocks some nice stuff.
