Well, it's been a long time coming. We finally got the technical issues resolved and have completed testing on the SQL Server 2005 Books Online release that we published to the MSDN and TechNet Libraries in September. The downloadable version is now available on the Microsoft Download Center at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=be6a2c5d-00df-4220-b133-29c1e0b6585f&DisplayLang=en. Next steps for us are to finish work on the localized versions and publish those to both MSDN/TechNet Libraries and the Download Center.

 Happy Holidays!
