Microsoft redistributes Exchange 12 Beta 1 as CTP

Posted by David Hunter at 7:36 PM ET.

Beta 1 of Exchange 12 was released last December, but now Microsoft has decided to broaden the audience according to the Exchange GM, Terry Myerson at the Microsoft Exchange Team Blog:

When we released Beta 1, we promised the release would be available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers early this year. Well, that time has come. Beta 1 is now being distributed via CD shipping to TechNet subscribers; MSDN subscribers will be able to download the CTP in March.

This CTP includes both the full 64-bit version, and the 32-bit version for feature evaluation, training, and demonstrations.

The latter is interesting since Exchange 12 is supposed to be 64-bit only. More by following the link including that Beta 2 is due in mid 2006 as a public CTP. The ship date is still projected to be “end of 2006 or early 2007.” One new feature of Exchange 12 that’s drawing buzz is continuous replication between Exchange servers.

  1. New betas of Exchange 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange from Microsoft -- Microsoft News Tracker Says:

    [...] Exchange Server 2007 beta 2 is available for download here, and Forefront Security for Exchange Server beta can be downloaded here. … General availability for Exchange Server 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange Server is scheduled for late 2006 or early 2007. Both products will be available through Microsoft’s Volume Licensing program and worldwide partner channel. Forefront Security for Exchange Server will be available as a stand-alone product or as part of the Exchange Enterprise Client Access License package. The Microsoft home pages for Exchange Server 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange Server have more information on the products themselves, but recall that Exchange 2007 will be x64 (i.e. 64-bit) only although like with beta 1, there’s a 32-bit version of beta 2 for “feature evaluation”. Also recall that Forefront is the new branding for Microsoft enterprise security products which in this case is being applied to what was an Antigen product acquired from Sybari.
