Today Microsoft announced that SQL Server 2012 codename “Denali” has Released To Manufacturing and will be available for download starting from April 1.
April fool’s? I don’t think so. Time will tell.
One thing is sure: each and every bug discovered in this version will be ascribed to that unusual release date.
If you’re a MSDN/TechNet subscriber, you can download them as of March 7. Yes, tomorrow! Keep your fingers ready to push the download button!
