SQL Server 2017 CTP 2.0

The SQL Server team announces CTP 2.0 of SQL Server 2017:

Microsoft is excited to announce a new preview for the next version of SQL Server!  We disclosed a name for this next release, SQL Server 2017, today at the Microsoft Data Amp event. Community Technology Preview (CTP) 2.0 is the first production-quality preview of SQL Server 2017, and it is available on both Windows and Linux.  In this preview, we added a number of new capabilities, including the ability to run advanced analytics using Python in a parallelized and highly scalable way, the ability to store and analyze graph data, and other capabilities that help you manage SQL Server for high performance and uptime, including the Adaptive Query Processing family of intelligent database features and resumable online indexing.

I can finally call it “SQL Server 2017” instead of “SQL Server vNext.”  I don’t know why there was such a hubbub about the name 2017, but there you go.  Anyhow, I’ve grabbed the CTP and am raring to go.
