Most important changes:

  • Project upgrade is now in place. For those of you who were kind enough to donate their database projects, thank you!
  • Mixed projects are no longer supported, from now on server projects represent only server creatable objects and user objects that need to be deployed to “master”.
  • Another change is that server options will not get deployed; we only validate the settings as pre-requisites for a deployment.
  • As such server options (sp_configure) have been added to the project system.
  • The interpreter now understands temporary tables, table variables and select into column sources.
  • The Static Code Analysis MSBuild task was added XSD Reference user interface support is enable, but it does not yet create XML Schema Collections
  • lots of fixes since CTP14
