CS14 RC bits released and new name announced – “Microsoft Lync”!
Today is a big day for the Communications Server (or now Lync Server) product group, firstly the release of a final name, Microsoft Lync Server 2010 – there were rumours doing the rounds and the strange appearance of a blog here seamed to be the catalyst for this, even though the majority of the screenshots were based around OCS 2007?!? Secondly (and most noteworthy) the availability of a public release candidate, here!!!
Microsoft Lync Server 2010 is a revolutionary step forwards for Microsoft’s software powered communications platforms and along with Exchange 2010 SP1 takes Unified Communications as we know it to the next level, see my previous post for a more detailed look at MLS2010 functionality.
Head here, for a full announcement from the Unified Communications Blog.
