|Lync 2013 Previewed|
|Wednesday, 01 August 2012|
Previews for the next version of the Lync unified communications line of software and online services appeared in July 2012. Lync products enable users to view and publish presence status (for example, online, busy, or away) and initiate various types of communication sessions, including instant messaging (IM), voice, video, and application sharing. The new versions will probably appear in the first half of 2013. They promise to improve conferencing (especially on devices that won't run Lync client software), ease configuration of maintenance of server installations, and help enforce data retention policies for archived Lync content. Better mobile clients and integration with the popular Skype communication service are also planned with release of the new versions, but are not available in the July 2012 previews.
