Microsoft SQL Server code-named ‘Denali’ – Community Technology Preview 1 (CTP1)

Microsoft released the CTP1 for SQL Server code-named ‘Denali‘ (aka SQL Server 2011?) yesterday.

Get it here.

This next version of SQL Server is expected to be ready for launch at the beginning of third quarter in 2011. One thing is certain, BIDS will receive a GUI-update that will look the same as Visual Studio 2010 🙂
