Microsoft prods and probes Office 14

Testing times

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.

ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley has more here and has an alleged early screenshot of Office 14 here. ®
