The new version of Microsoft's Telephony API, codenamed Tomahawk, will go into public beta test by the end of the month. It is designed to simplify the development of computer-telephony applications that require interaction between the PC and telephone system. Current versions of TAPI create these links using the Remote Procedure Call standard, but this entails extensive coding. Tomahawk will include a remote service provider that eliminates much of this "coding and plumbing", according to Microsoft. Also new is a server administration tool to make it easier for network managers to add or modify users and devices.
