No. There is not exact date of the release :(

The feature will work via the function AddNetworkMountingPoint. After such mounting point is created it will be able to access the storage as via the created network drive letter (like "m:", if it was specified to create) as via the UNC path (like "\\server_name\share_name", where server_name and share_name are parts of UNC path specified during the AddNetworkMountingPoint call).

Thanks Vladimir, just a few more questions:

So the UNC path of "\\server_name\share_name" will be the same as the drive letter, as opposed to having just the "\\server_name" be the same as the drive letter and the share names be the first level of folders.
Will you be able to add multiple share names for a server name?
Can you have a server name with no share names and then add share names at runtime?
Would there be the possibility of early access to feature when development on it begins?

Thanks, Ian.

It will have the same behavior as the "standard" Windows shares have. You will be able to access to virtual storages via the path "\\server_name\share_name", where server_name and share_name are names of a virtual server and a virtual share specified by you.

We are developing it now. Sure we release the beta (perhaps alpha) version at first. I'll notify in this topic about it.

Will the UNC path support require a virtual network adapter (i.e. a loopback adapter) or will it work as the current drive letters work now?

Thanks, Ian.
