With SQL Server 2008 RTM announced, we wanted to give you an update on the release plans for Report Builder 2.0.
Report Builder 2.0 will ship as part of the updated feature pack for SQL Server 2008 in fall of this year. It will be, as it was in RC0, a web download only. It will be available from the SQL Server feature pack download page. At release, Report Builder will be available in 21 languages similar to the Reporting Services SharePoint Add-in. The ClickOnce version of Report Builder 2.0 will not be supported in this timeframe and we are actively looking at releasing it as soon as possible after Report Builder 2.0 release.
An RC1 release will be made available, tentatively at the end of August. This build will contain all of the final features for Report Builder 2.0 and will only be in English. We’ll post a link as soon as it is available.
As always, we look forward to your feedback on Report Builder. Please provide feedback directly at: http://connect.microsoft.com/. Thank you.
