Today the Microsoft UC team has announced that Lync 2010 has reached Release to Manufacturing (RTM). This means that all the features and code are final.
The announcement from the UC team can be read HERE.
The next major milestone is General Availability (GA). This is set for November 17th and will line up with the virtual worldwide launch event.
You can find more information about the launch event and Lync product information by going to the official Microsoft Lync product page HERE.
I look forward to blogging more about Lync in the future!
