Speak of the devil.

Microsoft released to testers on the evening (EST) of December 20 the December Community Technology Preview (CTP) build of Longhorn Server.

Microsoft has posted the new Longhorn Server bits to the Microsoft Connect site for download. The December CTP is what was slated to be the November CTP of the next version of Windows Server.

Microsoft is planning on one more Longhorn Server CTP (possibly in January) before releasing the next major milestone, Beta 3, in the early part of 2007.

The final Longhorn Server release is slated to ship in the latter half of next year.
