Wave 15 is now RTM

Wave 15 is now RTM

If you haven’t seen it already, the whole Wave 15 has reached RTM state, which means that the code is ready.
This means that Office 2013, Lync 2013, Exchange 2013 and Sharepoint 2013 is now code completed.

The software will be available for download in mid November.

More information can be found on Exchange Team blog.

Another update regarding Exchange is that Microsoft re-released the Update Rollups.
Exchange 2010 UR4 for SP2 was re-released as UR4 v2, more info/download.
Exchange 2010 UR7 for SP1 was re-released as UR7 v2, more info/download.
Exchange 2007 UR8 for SP3 was re-released as UR8 v2, more info/download.

Since my last post I’ve had a great time attending MEC in Orlando, lots of great contents and met a lot of inspiring people.

In the upcoming weeks I will try to publish the next post, regarding load balancing for Exchange 2013 Preview. (It will be updated when the RTM is downloadable if there are any changes).

I did listen to Microsoft’s announcement for Wave 15
Here are some short directly from the webcast

Office 2013 will integrate directly with Skydrive and Skype, it looks really interesting at Windows 8 and all those really nice integrations if you ask me.

Exchange 2013 will not support a coexistence between Exchange 2003 and 2013, so all customers that has Exchange 2003 really needs to upgrade.
It does seem like we have really done a totally rebuild of the Exchange architecture.
