Microsoft is testing some of the server products that will eventually be folded into the next version of the firm’s Office suite.
The software vendor hasn’t revealed when a test version of the product, code-named Office 14, will be made generally available for developers to dabble with.
"Today Microsoft provided a select group of customers early access to an Alpha version of Office server technologies," said Redmond yesterday.
"However, Microsoft is not disclosing information about the timing for a beta version at this time."
The company has also begun prodding the next version of Exchange, code-named E14.
