Announcing Sync Framework v1.0 RC0 and Sync Services for ADO.NET v2.0 RC0 [Updated]

With the completion of TechEd 2008 for Developer we have one last big announcement to make.  A Release Candidate (RC0) of Sync Framework v1.0 and Sync Services for ADO.NET v2.0 for Desktops and Servers is now available. 
These components can be found as a top level feature within SQL Server 2008 RC0.  RC0 is the final step before SQL Server 2008 RTMs in Q3 of this year.

SQL Server 2008 RC0 can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center at:

  SQL Server 2008 Release Candidate 0

For MSDN and TechNet Plus subscribers, after logging into their respective accounts, subscribers can view Product Keys and download SQL Server 2008 RC0 from the following links:

    Where can we find the Sync Framework 1.0 RC0 bits?  Do we have to install SQL 2008 to get th Sync framework installed, or can we download or install the framework seperately?
