Redmond (WA) – Yesterday, Microsoft delivered Entourage for Exchange Web Services (Entourage EWS) Beta, which is part of Microsoft’s “Mac Business Unit” (MacBU) “long-term commitment to deliver Microsoft software and services across platforms.”
From the press release:
“Delivering greater connectivity between Entourage and Exchange as well as stronger parity between Entourage and Outlook remains a top priority for the MacBU. As part of this commitment, the team is moving the development of Entourage from WebDAV to Exchange Web Services for better compatibility, performance and reliability. These infrastructure changes provide more agility in development moving forward and delivers support for syncing Tasks, Notes and Categories for customers on Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 or later. Entourage EWS will launch a public beta this month. The final release will be available later this year as a free update to Office 2008 users, distributed via Mactopia.
