As part of “Blue” wave of releases, Microsoft has officially announced (so I no longer need to keep things secret), at TechEd North America an R2 version of System Center 2012 and a new release of Intune which will be even more tightly integrated. A public preview of R2 should be available around the end of this month which ties in with the public preview of Windows 8.1 with the products all being released by the end of this year.

In addition to the R2 release of System Center 2012 and new version of Intune, Microsoft is also planning to release a R2 version of Server 2012, Visual Studio 2013 and SQL 2014.
