There's a great new article up on MSDN giving an overview of the XML Support in Sql Server 2005:

XML Support in Microsoft SQL Server 2005

  How do I know its great?  Well, because I contributed of course!  Just a little, I did the section on SqlXml.  Shankar Pal and Mark Fussell did most of it.  Check it out for a great overview though.

Off to San Deigo tomorrow to get in a little golf before Tech-Ed.  Demos and slides are mostly done, hopefully everyone will enjoy my talk.  I've ended up with 23 slides, but that also includes a nice bulkload demo and an objects out of the database demo using SqlXml.  Hopefully that will be “Extreme” enough for everyone.
