SQL 2008 Releases Later this Summer
I am sort of disappointed to say the latest version of SQL Server will release in Q3 this year, which is not next month like I thought. So hold off on your upgrade plans for now. I am excited about this release. There are many new features I am waiting for, including the FileStream and Spatial data types. I also want to see how I can leverage the compression engine too. So for now I will just have to be content building Virtual Images and testing.
