After several years of hardwork the Release candidate for Microsoft Commerce Server 2007 is now available for public download. The details of the download location and the name change from Microsoft Commerce Server 2006 to Microsoft Commerce Server 2007 can be found in Ryan's post.

The team had been pretty busy for the past several weeks in making this possible and the biggest achievement after we shipped Beta was performance. After several weeks of performance and stress testing, I can definitely say that we now have a product which is not only feature rich and secure but also highly performant. Now that we have delivered on an important milestone I will start blogging regularly on the several cool features in the Commerce Server 2007 catalog system.
