This might have slipped under your radar: Microsoft released a service pack for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 last week.
The updated product brings performance improvements, especially when upgrading from Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 to the R2 release. The company said that the waiting time to upgrade can be cut from hours to days for large-scale service databases.
FIM 2010 R2 SP1 adds support for Active Directory 2012 within the management agent for Active Directory Domain Services. Similarly, it supports the recently released Exchange 2013.
It also adds additional cmdlet support for PowerShell. Plus, it adds support for third-party Sun and Oracle directory servers.

Back in September, the company axed many of the products within the suite, even shifting around some of the names of the products.
