SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM with Download Links

2 posts in this topic

Posted

SQL Server 2008 R2 has hit RTM and the downloads for the Express edition and the Datacenter evaluation are up. The product page has not been updated as of the time of this post. It looks like both x86 and x64 environments are supported for all editions. Probably most notable is that the free Express edition increased the maximum database size to 10 GB (up from 4 GB in previous releases). The 1 processor and 1 GB of memory usage limits are still in place and SQL Server Agent is still absent in the Express editions. Also interesting that they didn't include the updated Express edition in Visual Studio 2010.

Note: As of the time of this post, the Release Notes and Readme links at the following download pages still point to the late-2009 CTP documents.

Does anyone know when is the MSDN availability? I thought it was on 3rd May (today) but I don't see it there.
