Incremental updates to the latest Windows and Java technologies have been made available recently with Microsoft offering a new preview of its upcoming Longhorn server platform and Sun Microsystems adding a fix for daylight saving to Java. Microsoft posted on April 4 a Community Technology Preview build of Windows Server Longhorn to serve as a precursor to an upcoming Beta 3 of the platform. Microsoft wants beta customers to test and evaluate the CTP, which is available to beta participants at the Microsoft Connect site.

"The April 2007 CTP is another milestone on the march to Beta 3, which is still on track for the first half of this year, and it includes a number of enhancements to existing server roles and features plus some UI changes, most notably in the Server Manager tool and the addition Powershell," said Helene Love Snell, Microsoft senior product manager in the Windows Server Division, in a statement released by the company. Powershell is command-line shell and scripting language to boost IT productivity. It features more than 130 command line tools and consistent syntax and utilities.
