Microsoft sneaks out Longhorn CTP

Posted by David Hunter at 10:01 PM ET.

Yesterday Microsoft released an previously unheralded CTP of Windows Server Longhorn:

Late on Wednesday, as part of our commitment to deliver regular updates of Windows Server “Longhorn” to our communities, we released the April 2007 Community Technology Preview of Windows Server “Longhorn”. This marks the last CTP we will release before Beta 3, and it is a late snapshot of what will be a very major milestone for us. Don’t forget that Beta 3 will be our first public beta and IT professionals can sign up now to be notified of its availability.

So what’s new in the April 2007 CTP? Well, most new features actually appeared in the February 2007 CTP, although we have been keeping some things back for Beta 3. In this build, you will see some more UI updates and performance improvements, but there are some interesting new enhancements.

Well yes, but you mostly have to be a server geek like me to love them. Follow the link for more details.

The April 2007 CTP is now available for our technical beta testers on the Connect web site and it will be available for MSDN and TechNet subscribers on their download site early next week. Go get it if you can but don’t worry if you can’t – Beta 3 is just around the corner!

Beta 3 has been promised for midyear.
