BETA: SQL Server 2008 November CTP now available

Many of you have anxiously waited for this day. The SQL Server Connect Team in conjunction with the SQL Server Product Team are proud to announce the release of the November CTP of SQL Server 2008 Katmai.

We know, we know. Where are the bits? Here is a direct link to the download on the Download Center. Yes, we have installers and media ISOs available. Along with x86, x64, and IA64 releases, we are also happy to present an Express version!

To allow for more visibility to the masses of this major release, we have hosted our builds on the Download Center. Don’t fret. The SQL Server Connect site will still be your primary source of resources, knowledge, and information about SQL Server 2008 Katmai. We plan to make it a very happy holidays for you. After you have downloaded the November CTP builds, come back to the SQL Server CTP site to see what new features and improvements make up the November CTP.

After the Thanksgiving holidays, we will also resume our Live Meeting Improvement series with our improvement teams. If you missed the prior Live Meetings, go to the Connect Downloads area and download the recordings to listen to while you are recovering from turkey overload.

Last and most important, we at the SQL Server Team want to wish you a very happy holidays with your loved ones. We appreciate all the feedback you have given us to help us make SQL Server 2008 Katmai the best product around.
