Thank you to everybody who posted comments in newsgroups, forums, and on the first SQL Server™ Best Practices Analyzer blog entry. We have been able to complete a lot of your requests already.
We’ve had some great short-term success with SQL BPA 2.0. Thanks to a lot of help from the Exchange Best Practices Analyzer team, in just a couple of weeks we’ve been able to put together a prototype with the following features:
All of this is very exciting. In the coming month, we will be adding a few more features to the prototype in case we get the opportunity to demo it at a conference like TechEd. More importantly, we will continue our investigation on a few topics:
These are four of the most difficult questions we face in the project. I could write an entire blog entry about the difficulties with each of these topics. Each one could dramatically change the scope of the project. The more feedback we get from customers, the better we can judge what is important.

1) When it will ship
2) What features are available
