In an earlier post I wrote about Microsoft researching possibilities for BizTalk Server 2006 supporting the latest Windows, SQL Server and Visual Studio releases.

Today I read a blogpost by Richard Seroter who writes about a new release of BizTalk Server 2006 marked as R3 is scheduled for the first half of 2009, this was announced by Steve Martin (Microsoft CDS).

So R3 will support:

  • Window Server 2008
  • SQL Server 2008
  • Visual Studio 2008

Besides that there will be some enhancements and additions

“We are also taking the opportunity as part of this BizTalk Server release to deliver additional customer-requested capabilities for our core SOA infrastructure.  We will give more updates on specific features in the coming months, but at a high level we are planning some new investments in the release that includes: “

  • New web service registry capabilities with support for UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration) version 3.0
  • Enhanced service enablement of applications (through new and enhanced adapters for LOB applications, databases, and legacy/host systems
  • Enhanced service enablement of “edge” devices through BizTalk RFID Mobile
  • Enhanced interoperability and connectivity support for B2B protocols (like SWIFT, EDI, etc
  • SOA patterns and best practices guidance to assist our customer’s implementations

However, this release does not correspond to the Oslo project.
