SSMS 17.5 Released

Alan Yu announces SQL Server Management Studio 17.5:

SSMS 17.5 provides support for almost all feature areas on SQL Server 2008 through the latest SQL Server 2017, which is now generally available.

In addition to enhancements and bug fixes, SSMS 17.5 comes with several exciting new features:

  • Data Discovery and Classification is a new feature for discovering, classifying, labeling and reporting sensitive data in your databases.
  • Query Editor now has support for a SkipsRows option for the Delimited Text External File Format for Azure SQL Data Warehouse.
  • Showplan has enabled the display of estimated plan button for SQL Data Warehouse.

SSMS 17.5 also includes key bug fixes to Showplan, Query Editor, SMO, and Templates, which can be found in the Release Notes.

Aside from data discovery and classification, it’s probably not a major update for most people, but this does look like an interesting tool.
