Microsoft execs also used TechEd this week to go deeper on what's coming in the next version of SQL Server, codenamed "Denali." This slide compares the technology priorities for the past two SQL Server releases with the coming Denali release. Microsoft so far has delivered two Community Technology Previews of Denali. The third will be coming later this summer, officials said this week. The SQL Server team still won't say when it plans to deliver the final release of SQL Server; there's been talk that it could be very late in 2011 or some time in 2012.
