It has been more than a week since, Microsoft released the beta builds of the next version of Windows Home Server “Vail”. Now, for developers to get started for building great, cool and useful add-ins, Microsoft released Windows Home Server v1 SDK. “There’re many ways one can extend Vail – by extending Dashboard (old Admin Console), Launchpad or by building a Provider. You can even build an addin which has both server & client components to it. Vail SDK contains information about all these plus APIs for many other core features like Alerts framework, Storage (Server Folders & Hard Drives), Computers & Backup, Identity, Remote Access, Media Streaming and much more! SDK also contains detailed documentation as to how you can build, package & deploy your add-ins to Vail Server & clients. All-in-all, you can see that we’ve tried to put up a much broader and more powerful SDK in place compared to previous version,” announced Microsoft.
