The Windows Live Mesh team has announced that during this week, Mesh will now be a beta and will add more features to the service. It will also become open to the public, meaning that users who have a Windows Live ID will now be able to access the product without waiting for an invite using Microsoft Connect.
Among the new features announced in a blog post, they include:
- Additional member roles: Creator, Owner, Contributor and Reader
- Drag and Drop files onto the Live Desktop
- Sync Mesh folders P2P only, excluding your Live Desktop, from the computer itself
- Improved P2P sync performance and reliability.
Also announced will be the support for Mac and Windows Mobile clients also this week. If you can’t wait – you can see this link (https://developer.mesh-ctp.com/Welcome/default.aspx) to have a look around. This will move to mesh.com when it moves to Beta.
