Along with the release of OS X Lion this summer, the Lion version of Server will also be enhanced, and will feature profile management for iDevices and wireless file sharing with the iPad, easier setup and collaboration through Wiki Server 3.
Lion Server’s streamlined setup may be just the enticement to those daunted by the thought of setting up a server. There aren’t many details to go on here, but anything Apple can do to make server configuration easier is a big plus.
This summer users will be able to wirelessly view and grab iWork documents — from Numbers, Keynote and Pages — off a server running Lion with their iPads. This new feature’s a huge boon for enterprise iPad users, and should bolster the iPad’s rep as a serious work tool. Profile-based setup and control of iDevices and automatic, over-the-air profile changes will also be added.
Finally, Wiki Server 3 will be updated with beefed-up file-sharing abilities and sports a new page editor.
