I was on a call with several other folks the other day discussing "Katmai". The topic of DTS came up. MSFT had indicated that support for DTS would not go beyond SQL Server 2005 in a variety of channels. I can remember the dozens of Upgrade Advisor messages that always appeared. I just revisited the "Advisory" text. It says that support for DTS will be discontinued at a future date.
Well, it looks like a bunch of folks out there still love those DTS packages. Why do I say this? In the July CTP of SQL Server 2008 BOL, there is a section on DTS. Basically, there is nothing different about DTS support for 2008.
No News is Good News? Yes and No. Yes - that means that many organizationis will not be forced to rewrite DTS packages into SSIS as they move forward. No - that means that many organizations will not take advantage of newer technology.
Also, no SSIS in Express edition in 2008. BOL still recommends using 2000 DTS components here.
