After a long-weekend marathon, WHS Disk Management v1.1.0.0 has finally reached alpha status. I'm looking for a few brave souls to help with testing; if you're interested, send me a private message on the We Got Served forums, or contact us using the blog.

So what's new in this release? Well, exciting things are afoot.

We've changed to a client/service architecture, removing the heavy-lifting from the Add-In code and pushing the processing out to a Windows service. The change was made for a number of reasons, the most important of which are:

  1. To follow Microsoft's new developer guidelines for Windows Home Server Add-ins
  2. To remove most of the excuses we had for not developing alerting, logging, and reporting capabilities in the Add-In

We'll be testing this release for a lot longer than we have in the past; this is a significant departure from the previous architecture, and we need to make sure we've got it right.

We promise that the next release will be worth the wait!
