Microsoft blogger Nicole Berett reveals Windows Home Server Power Pack 3 has been delayed. This update was scheduled to arrive on October 22nd but is now planned to arrive sometime before the end of the year.
We’ve talked extensively about the improvements that Power Pack 3 for Windows Home Server will deliver for users. We were proud to show off the beta code of Power Pack 3 at the recent CEDIA 2009 custom installer technology show, where we got lots of positive reception to the feature set. It’s clear that the anticipation of using Windows Home Server with the upcoming Windows 7 client PC operating system is reaching feverish pitch! OK, maybe that was a slight exaggeration…But the bottom line is that we’ve gotten tremendous feedback (and test coverage) from you, our enthusiasts, around Power Pack 3 – and we couldn’t be more excited.
This being said, our top priority is to ensure the absolute highest level of product quality, and to this end, we will continue with additional testing of the software. As with past software releases, our team will not ship the official final release of Power Pack 3 until the community has validated our work. We expect to deliver before the end of the year.
