SQL Server 2008 RTM

I'm forward dating this, but as you read this the bits should start becoming available. Congrats to the team on a focused release < 3 years since the last release.

The various SKUs and supplimental bits such as the Feature Pack are going to be coming available over the next few weeks.

Once all the links go live I'll update this post with the links.



Update: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/downloads/default.aspx Has Ent, Dev, Std, Web and Workgroup for subscriber downloads, can't see Express or Ent Trial yet on the non subscriber pages.

Update: Today Eval Edition and Feature Pack became available

    I see the downloads listed on MSDN, but the link is greyed out?

  6. Ladies and gentlemen, the moment we have all been waiting for (well us SQL Server geeks at least). SQL

  7. ChrisH,

    Then either there is a problem with the site or your MSDN subscription is not of the right level. Either way try again and if it still fails contact MSDN Support


    "Real Soon"

  9. Haju,

    As a general rule the consuming teams own publishing their support for a new version of SQL Server, and in general this happens in a servicing release (Hotfix, ServicePack etc)

    So now that the RTM has been released…Does anyone want to guess the timeframe for Service Pack 1 to come out?

  11. As Jon notes , the BizTalk course in NYC that he taught is over. I want to thank Jon for a great course. If you want to take the best BizTalk (or WF or WCF) courses around, you want to see Jon and Pluralsight. I also really enjoyed hanging out with Jon
