SharePoint 2013 RTM is available now. I found few differences between SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 preview versions.
- Tools – SharePoint 2013 has introduced new Tools for App development. Visual Studio 2012 now lets you develop apps for SharePoint and apps for Office. In addition a new web-based tool called “Napa” Office 365 Development Tools were introduced for developing apps.
- No more Sandbox solutions. SharePoint 2013 sandboxed solutions are deprecated. So all we got is the New App model and the Old SharePoint Farm solutions.
- SharePoint 2010 Introduced Sandbox solutions to help developers deploy code that did not affect the whole farm.
- In SharePoint 2010 you could use Server Object model and Client Object model (.Net Managed, ECMASCRIPT and Silverlight) to extract data from SharePoint.
- In SharePoint 2010 developers were also developing Farm solutions as they did with the previous SharePoint 2007 version.
|Social and Collaboration features
|Microsoft in SharePoint 2013 Introduced new Social capabilities for better collaboration in the company. New Features added are –
- Interactive feed
- Community Site
- Follow people
- Follow Sites
|SharePoint 2010 had very few social capabilities.
- My sites
- Tags and Tag profile pages
|SharePoint 2013 includes several enhancements, custom content processing with the Content Enrichment web service, and a new framework for presenting search result types. Some of the features added are –
- Consolidated Search Results
- Rich Results Framework
- keyword query language (KQL) enhancements
|SharePoint 2010 had Introduced Integrated FAST search as an Enterprise search. In addition to this build-in SharePoint search is still widely used in companies.
|Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
|SharePoint 2013 added some of the best capabilities of ECM software. The newly added stuff is
- Design Manager
- Managed Navigation
- Cross-site Publishing
|SharePoint 2010 on the other hand had Introduced Managed metadata and taxonomy as a part of new ECM benefits for SP 2010. This version did not have Managed Navigation and Cross-site Publishing. SharePoint designer was a primary tool to modify Master pages instead of the new Design Manager.
