We are happy to announce that CTP7 is already here, no need to wait till next Monday, here it is!
CTP6 was only released 2 weeks ago, so what changed?
We did changed the requirements for installing CTP7 to match RTM. CTP7 will now require a retail version of Visual Studio Team Suite ( VSTS ) or the trial version of VSTS ( found here ). Why is this? That is how our evaluation process will work once released. If a customer is looking to evaluate VSTS or any role based product in the suite, they are required to download the VSTS trial bits. We are very close to releasing the product, so we are essentially providing you access to CTP7 in evaluation mode. Be warned: the VSTS trial bits are a hefty download!
What is next? We are finishing up, we will release this year, unless I get hit by a bus! Next week I will be at SQL Connection in Las Vegas, the week after at SQL PASS in Seattle, Thanksgiving and release the product!
