Great news! We reached another important milestone on the road to the final release of Windows Server 2012 Essentials: the Release Candidate (RC) is available now for download and evaluation.
If customers haven’t started exploring the product yet, this new pre-release version is an ideal time to begin. Customer and partner feedback on the Beta release has helped us prioritize the changes we have made – so thanks to everyone who provided feedback to us.
Here are some of the major changes in the RC:
We are now turning our sights towards the Windows Server 2012 Essentials release to manufacturing (RTM). The other Windows Server 2012 editions released to manufacturing at the beginning of August. Our goal has been to release Windows Server 2012 Essentials to manufacturing and make it generally available by the end of 2012 and we remain committed to this target.
