SharePoint App Market Place
SharePoint Apps will support multi-tenancy. It appears that Apps will support both sandboxed and farm solutions.
Work Management Services
Work management services handle tasks assigned to users.

Content Management Service
The Publishing service lives on – now under the Content Management service, along with features such as managed metadata, document transformations, and the aforementioned eDiscovery.

SharePoint Education aims at satisfying educational institutions’ needs for a collaborative and educational environment. It seems to target the needs of both faculty and students, and supports features such as:
- academic documents, likely books, articles, and so on
- communities, a new grouping mechanism, ‘parent’ of courses
- courses, a collection of academic documents, assignments, and lessons
- assignments, including assigning assignments to individual students
- events, possibly real-time lectures and assignment deadlines
- meetings, including recording of online meetings and meeting schedules
- grades, numeric or non-numeric (letter)
