More Updates and Minor Release on the way

Website “We Got Served” had reader questions answered by Todd Headrick, Charlie Kindel and Joel Sider of the Windows Home server team, which can be read over on Terry’s blog. Some of the highlights which I am sure you will be interested in include:

  • Another update for WHS from Windows Update will be available in November (2007).
  • A “minor” release for WHS is being worked on which is Code Named “UR1” standing for Update Rollup 1 or Update Release 1 that will come out in the first half of next year.
  • The connector software for Vista x64 will be supported. An alpha version is being tested internally and the team would like to release it as part of the first “minor” release “UR1”.
  • Connector software for XP x64 will NOT be supported.
  • The team is working on the next set of scenarios which could include features like backup to Internet-based storage.
  • The possibility of OneCare integration is being worked on.
  • The team will be looking for the participation of the community in future WHS betas.
  • The possibilities of extending the Home Computer Backup & Restore technologies of Windows Home Server to other operating systems is also being investigated.
