SQL Server 2008 July CTP

By Bill Graziano on 1 August 2007 | 11 Comments | Tags: SQL Server 2008 Release


Microsoft squeeeeezed in the July CTP for SQL Server 2008 with barely a few hours to spare. It includes some interesting new functionality. It looks like separate date and time data types are finally included as well as support for a time zone aware datetime data type.  There are also improvements in Reporting Services, Analysis Services, improved dependency handling in T-SQL, improved XML support, large user-defined types and various other enhancements.  Microsoft also posted a neat chart summarizing the improvements.
