SQL Server 2016 Availability

Microsoft announce that SQL Server 2016 will be generally available on 1 June, 2016.

There’s not much detail on any licensing changes – so far we just know that the editions are confirmed as Express, Standard, Enterprise, and Developer and so we say farewell to the Business Intelligence edition.

The announcement is here: http://bit.ly/24iTI29 and you can download a datasheet about the editions here: http://bit.ly/21qiTdT.
