What's New in SQL Server 2016 Release Candidate (RC0)

Hello SQL folks! Are you still excited that SQL Server will be available on Linux soon?

Now, as you probably know the SQL Server 2016 RC0 is now public so everybody can play with it now!

You can download the version here

You can also go and log into the Microsoft Azure and play with the SQL Server there - the VM is ready waiting for you!

Please read what's new in the product since the first CTP here

If you are interested what has changed since we have had version CTP 3.3 - here you are the release notes

Stay in touch and if by any chance you are in Prague this week - I will be there! There is a MVP Open Days conference and I will be talking about the execution plans.  Drop me a note here or on twitter (@damianwidera) and we could talk about the SQL Server (but not only ;)) drinking the best Czech beers!

That is most probably because of a wildcard dns entry. *

so anything as prefix is working.

Looks like this site might have kicked it off:

There are a lot of them out there. The wildcard mentioned by rKuster keeps typos from ruining in-links, but some search engines *cough*bing*cough* don't understand what's going on and you can see hundreds of different weird SQLblog URLs...
