Microsoft on Monday posted the first test version of a new Windows file system.

The company made the test version the file system, called WinFS, available to subscribers to its Microsoft Developer Network service.

The software was originally intended as a key feature of Windows Vista–developed under the code name Longhorn–the next release of the operating system expected somtime next year.

However, roughly one year ago, Microsoft announced that it was removing WinFS from Vista and would release it separately in order to meet its delivery schedule for Longhorn.
