Database specialist Lynn Langit installed the latest release of SQL Server Data Tools and shared the experience on her blog. The idea behind the new release is to make developing with databases in Visual Studio more like working in SQL Server Management studio. It's completely free and takes about 30 minutes to download and install from start-to-finish.

Lynn walks through the whole process from the install, everything that's 'cool and new' about the CTP (her words, not mine!), right through to publishing.

Install the latest release of SQL Server Data Tools here and have fun!
