Rather than announcing new bits of content on various blogs, we will simply update the SQL Server 2012 Early Adoption Cookbook wiki so there is one place to find all the latest information about early adoption content assets.

- Database Engine AppCompat
- Database Engine AlwaysOn
- Database Engine Beyond Rational
