Microsoft have announced that their Pinpoint applications guide will have a new category for Windows Home Server V1 so if you are a developer of V1 add-ins you will want to sign up.

Here is what Microsoft says:

To our valued Windows Home Server V1 add-in developers:

Thank you for your continued support for Windows Home Server, we appreciate all you’ve done and want to make you aware of a new opportunity to list your existing Windows Home Server (WHS) V1 add-in directly with Microsoft.

Beginning on September 16th, the “Pinpoint” applications guide will have a new category for WHS V1. We are moving away from our static page on to content delivered via the Pinpoint database. This has several key advantages for you:

1) The Pinpoint solutions guide is self-service; you can create and change entries yourself.

2) Over time, the database content will be surfaced on our team’s website as well as other Microsoft web properties.

3) We are also planning to create similar Pinpoint database entries for the upcoming Vail and Aurora releases for you to list your updated add-ins as well.

4) We encourage you to list any other software you’ve developed for our other products in the Windows Server Product Family.

Our WHS V1 listing in the Pinpoint applications guide has a planned go live date of September 16, 2010. You will be able to create entries on beginning on that date. The location for Windows Home Server will be found within the “Windows Server Product Family” category. The URL to sign up is:

In addition, please keep us updated on your progress moving your add-in to WHS V2, or “Vail” via email to: [email protected] .

Finally, in case you still need to sign up for the Vail and Aurora public betas, the URLs for their Microsoft Connect sites are listed below:

Thank you,

The Home and Small Business Server Product Development and Marketing team

So if you are a developer, head over and sign up today.
