Windows HomeServer 'Vail' beta nowavailable fordownload, bringsimproved UI andstreaming options

Microsoft has
revealed today its public beta of
the next version of WHS, code
named "Vail." The primary
upgrades / changes include the
extension of media streaming
outside of the home or office,
improvements in multi-PC backup
and restore, simplified setup and
user experience as well as
"significantly" expanded
development and customization
tools for partner. Beyond that, the
company's playing things pretty
close to the chest, but you can feel
free to grab a 64-bit copy of the
beta starting today and dig in
yourself. 'Course, Microsoft
recommends that you install the
software on a secondary (read: not
important to your livelihood)
machine, and on the development
front, it's introducing a new SDK for
those who wish to "create add-in
applications using Vail's new
extensible programming model."
So, whatcha waiting for? That
download is calling.
