It’s official! The Developer Edition of the BizTalk Server which wasn’t availabe within the release of version 2013 in April returns. As from 01.11.2013 you can get the licence, not for free like before but for less than 50 USD.

So the BizTalk community made Microsoft change their mind. That’s good because BizTalk is still the most distributed Integration Server around and is at the core of the Microsoft-Strategy to connect people, system and processes on a single platform.

Of course BizTalk Server will still be included in the MSDN Premium Subscription and can therefor be used for the purpose of development.
