SQL Server 2008 - CTP6 is now available

The next CTP of SQL Serve 2008 is now available for download.

Whats different about this CTP from the others, apart from the new features which there are a lot, is there is a bug bash contest that is opening.

Simply put the people that raise the most nonduplicate reproducible bugs on CTP6 in the next month will win XBoxes. The rules are available here


I was suprised at how many XBoxes they are giving away, which shows the commitment to getting bugs ironed out now and not later in the day.

CTP6 is nearest to RTM with very few additional features being added from here on in. So if you fancy an XBox get installing and see if you can find a bug.
