SQL Server vNext CTP 1.1

Denis Gobo notes that there’s a new CTP for SQL Server:

TRANSLATE
This acts like a bunch of replace statements, instead of REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(SomeVal,'[‘,'(‘),’]’,,’)’),'{‘,'(‘),’}’,,’)’) you can do the following which is much cleaner
SELECT TRANSLATE('2*[3+4]/{7-2}', '[]{}', '()()');

Running that will return 2*(3+4)/(7-2)

The translate function looks very interesting.  Click through for a few more goodies and get ready for the never-ending release cycle.
