SQL Operations Studio March Release

Alan Yu announces a new version of SQL Operations Studio:

Take a moment to breathe, this is a loaded update.

The March Public Preview release is focused on improving our Extensibility story and continuing to address top GitHub issues. This includes enabling Extension Manager, improving the Manage Dashboard experience and providing a couple Insights extensions. Please see the following details.

  • Enhance the Manage Dashboard extensibility model to support tabbed Insights and Configuration panes

  • Dashboard Insights extensions for sp_whoisactive from whoisactive.com and a Server Reports example

  • Extension Manager enables simple acquisition of 1st-party and 3rd-party extensions

  • Add additional Extensibility APIs for connection and objectexplorer management

  • Community Localization open for 10 languages

  • Continue to fix important customer impacting GitHub issues

There’s some nice stuff in this release, but the big story is around extensibility.
