source site Okay so it has been about a month now since the SP2 CTP for December has been released and I am still awaiting the official release of the service pack. For those of you that are uninitiated with what the service pack contains …well, the biggest thing for me is the addition of vardecimal type. I work with a lot of financial data warehousing applications and this is a godsend. It will save a lot of space for me on my servers so I can’t wait to get a full fledged version so that I can load on my production systems. If anyone hears anything about a possible release date then please let me know…it was promised for Q1 of this year but time is ticking and no announcement yet!
