Apple's QuickTime Streaming Server 3 Public Preview has been released.

The US-English software is free to download, but is for evaluation purposes only. Apple is asking for feedback on the software. This preview expires on July 1.

New features include improved streaming capabilities, such as reliable packet retransmission and transmission of broadcast streams.

Configuring the QuickTime Streaming Server is easier due to a new Web-based interface, according to Apple, and it supports Mac OS X.
