Microsoft has released the release candidate for Commerce Server 2009 R2 as of today. One exciting thing to note is that there are two separate downloads for standard and enterprise editions.
You will definitely need to start with a fresh installation as with most Release Candidate installs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep your databases.
“This is obviously an important milestone as we move towards the final release later in 2011.” quoted from Microsoft’s e-commerce blog. I hope the product release is soon, as all of us commerce server developers are very excited to bring it into play.
