Today we’re announcing the availability of the first public release candidate for SQL Server 2019, which is now available for download. SQL Server 2019 brings the industry-leading performance and security of SQL Server to Windows, Linux, and containers and can tackle any data workload from business intelligence to data warehousing to analytics and AI over all your data both structured and unstructured.
Amit’s update covers the span of what we’ve seen in all of the CTPs. I went through the release notes and did not find a huge amount of detail on what went into RC1 versus CTP 3.2. But the fact that they’re up to RCs means that SQL Server 2019 is getting close to release.
