Like Salvador Dali I have hung up my watch. I am in Barcelona to enjoy a bit of culture now TechEd is over. 

However I did notice that the next beta of SQL Server 2008 (CTP5) which has about 75% of the functionality of the final release and is now available on the connect site to download.

Some of the new and interesting stuff in there includes:

  • The new spatial data,type indexes and functions to enable location intelligence.
  • Database encryption to protect the database 'at rest'.
  • The new filestream data type which extends allows for flexible storage of unstructured data.
