I had the opportunity today to get my hands on the upcoming release.   It’s looking very good.   My guess on release date this year is April 22nd.

The quick take away’s from in installations point of view are:

  • You may configure all databases at once.  This means a much quicker installation.
  • The services have been renamed for the most part (see below).
  • Less Microsoft specifics when we talk about FDM EE (no ASP.NET requirement)
