The Microsoft Commerce Server team is pleased to announce that the Release Candidate of Commerce Server 2007 is now available to download on .
Release Notes:

Note that with this Release Candidate, a name change to Commerce Server 2006 to Commerce Server 2007 has been implemented.

This is a name change only and does not affect any features, support, or anything else.
