Who Is Active Update

Adam Machanic has an update to sp_whoisactive:

Four and a half years have flown by since I released sp_whoisactive version 11.11.

It’s been a pretty solid and stable release, but a few bug reports and requests have trickled in. I’ve been thinking about sp_whoisactive v.Next — a version that will take advantage of some newer SQL Server DMVs and maybe programmability features, but in the meantime I decided to clear out the backlog on the current version.

Given that I have three keyboard shortcuts dedicated to sp_whoisactive, you know I’m excited.  Adam also has a new domain for the product.
