New CTP for “Data Dude” (Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals)

Just got the word today that the latest GDR release of the Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals is available for download!! (Links below)

There are a number of new features in this CTP (Read the list on Gerts Blog) but by far the most anticipated for me is the new VSDBCMD.EXE command line utility. This will become a part of our field toolkit for sure! The tool allows you to generate .dbschema files that can be used in schema compares, as well as supplying many of the deployment features as well. I can’t wait to start really testing this utility!
