New version of CCC coming up!

All CCC versions available at http://www.nullsession.com/downloads

I’m currently in the process of finalizing the next version of CCC. This time I’ve had some help from another developer who’s name is Robin Granberg. I’ll let him introduce himself in another post, all I know about him is that he works at Volvo in Köping here in Sweden. And that he can code stuff in batch-files of course.

We’ve developed some really nifty features in this version, but I won’t tell you anything until it’s released though. In true “under-promise, over-deliver” manners. I think this will be the last version for Windows Server 2008 Core. There will most likely be a separate version for Windows Server 2008 Core R2, since some of the commands syntax has changed.

I’m also looking at another script for Hyper-V Server, there is a version available out of the box, but I have some more tricks up my sleeve. I just have to check if it actually works good enough for a release into the wild.

Update: See http://www.nullsession.com/2009/06/18/release-of-ccc-0-98/ for the latest release!

CCC has had a number of downloads by now (more than anticipated I’d say). The feedback I’ve got so far is the ability to add/remove roles, list installed roles, configure some services that we’re not handling right now and screen resolution. In the making at the moment is a minor update to make some of it work, it’ll probably be released closer to the weekend or beginning next week.

Update: It is released, see http://www.nullsession.com/2008/10/21/ccc-091ccc-091/

Have any more wishes for CCC? I’m thinking iSCSI but that’s a lot of parameters, which all differ each time you use it… We’ll see if I come up with a clever plan.

Tomorrow I’m speaking and doing a demonstration at the Swedish launch of Hyper-V at Rival at Mariatorget. I’ve spent two days setting up a really cool demo showing off some new infrastructural changes in Microsoft software. If you’re there you’ll see it, otherwise I’ll tell you when I can. Yeah, I know, but I can’t tell…
