August CTP of Commerce Server 2009 “R2” available


Just a quick fyi that the August CTP of Commerce Server 2009 R2 is not available on connect.

Features include:

  • Complete 3-tier/n-tier functionality – which enables Commerce Server to be used outside of the normal Web page/Web server context from any type of Rich Interactive Application (RIA), such as Silverlight, Air, or a native mobility solution such as a native iPhone client
    • A robust claims-based authentication mechanism to allow this to be securely used over the Internet – even for shopping scenarios
  • Visual merchandising toolbar functionality – including much richer catalog editing, cross-sell/up-sell, and image management – all implemented in Silverlight 3
  • Numerous improvements to the out-of-box site
