SQL Server 2005 October Community Technical Preview available on betaplace – soon on MSDN Subscriber Dowloads…

We have taken the decision to release a later build of SQL Server 2005 - with many improvements over Beta 2. Right now you need to have a betaplace login and be enrolled into the SQL Server 2005 beta program to gain access. You will find it in the downloads section for 32bit and 64bit (around 600MB download). There is also a corresponding build of VS.NET 2005 which integrates with this. If you do not have the above access then don't worry - it will also be made available through MSDN Subscriber downloads for Professional and above subscribers in a week or two. I know this is a very welcome release by many of the early adopters I am working with. There is a little more on this at http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1677382,00.asp

Not yet tried installing it - but check out this chaps work arounds for some issues he came across http://weblogs.asp.net/wallym/archive/2004/10/17/243703.aspx
