    That's very welcome news. I know I've talked with a lot of folks who wished there would be a standard implementation of FTP+SSL for IIS. We've always had to point them to third party products like Ipswitch's FTP server.

    Once it gets out of beta, are there any plans to include it as the default FTP server "out of the box", rather than a separate download?

    As far as including it in the build, perhaps someday, but not by RTM. Deliving out of band, as we call it internally, helps agility as we can get more content and services to you that way. When it's bundled with the OS, there is an extermely high load that accompanies it which is as it should be for a core OS service.
