OCS and OC 2007 trial versions available now

Roger Sleurink from Trends IT writes to tell me that the trial versions of Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communicator 2007 are now available for download. Thanks for the heads up Roger.

I have checked the TechNet site, and it doesn't look like OCS has made it to the subscriber downloads yet. It seems that the subscriptions site has had a much needed face-lift though.

I have been busy migrating my servers to new hardware this weekend, and have a little more work to do, at which point I'll be setting up OCS 2007 to work with Asterisk and sipX.

Doug Behl from the Malibu Software Group and I have spent the past several weeks working on tightening the integration between Asterisk and Exchange. With the two of us being on opposite ends of the planet it has generally meant we were 'following the sun' with at least one of us working on this at any point in the day. He has also had a head start on the OCS integration and has provided me his configuration details to start with. Thanks for all your help so far Doug!
