Sql 2008 R2 : November CTP now available


The latest CTP ( November ) is now available. The download link is here. There is also another page called the MS Sql R2 Nov CTP Preview Pack. It contains additional tools like Report Builder 3 and Power Pivot. You can get it here.

So whats new ? Well there’s plenty to look forward to. In terms of Reporting Services :

  1. Sparklines.
  2. Data Bars.
  3. Indicators
  4. Naming Excel Tabs !! .
  5. New web service endpoint.

There’s a few other things as well , such as something called Shared Datasets and Cached Refresh Plans and new features in Sharepoint Integrated Mode. Of course I’m installing it as you read this , so I’ll post articles in depth on any of the new features I find exciting soon !
