In addition to providing support for SQL Server 2008 database projects, this release incorporates many previously released Power Tools as well as several new features. The new features include distinct Build and Deploy phases, Static Code Analysis and improved integration with SQL CLR projects. Database Edition no longer requires a Design Database. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to install an instance of SQL Express or SQL Server prior to using Database Edition. Let us learn about Visual Studio Team System.
Update: When I had written this blog post this download link indeed made sense, however, when I look back at the time, I realize that it has been so long since the new version of Visual Studio and SQL Server. When I am updating this blog post we are in the year 2016 and there are lots of things happened since then. I strongly suggest that you download the latest product and do not go to the suggestion.
Here is the new link where you can download Visual Studio 2015.
Anyway, as you are reading this blog post which was written in the year 2008, here is my question for you to make this project more meaningful.
What was the first version of SQL Server you started to work with? Leave a comment.
