I am sure you know that Visual Studio 2008 is released. That was last week, I know, old news! Well, I am sure that you also know that VS 2008 contains the new sync designer along with SQL Compact 3.5 RTM. I am sure you got board by now, but hold on, let me tell something new, the SQL Compact 3.5 along with Sync Services for ADO.NET v1 are available for download as a standalone package. That is very convenient for those who are looking to install it without the full blown VS 2008. As much as I love for you to experience sync designer as well as the amazing lineup of features in VS 2008, I recognize your needs for quick install of a small package. So no need to wait any longer, here are the links to the download pages:

Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 RTM for Windows Desktop
Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Books Online and Samples
Microsoft Synchronization Services for ADO.NET Books Online

What's more? There are no major changes between Beta 2 and RTM thus your application should compile without any issues. I am updating the samples on syncguru web site along with the codeproject article.


Update: Just to let you know, I left Microsoft to start a new company, Raveable Hotel Reviews. See examples: Top 10 Hotels in Myrtle Beach, Best Hotels in New York City, Romantic Hotels in Seattle, Hotels with a kitchen or kitchenette, Romantic hotels in Kissimmee and Best Hotels in San Francisco.
