SQL Server 2008 R2 got to RTM last week

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/04/29

After the excitement of .NET 4.0 and all the tools around it, I totally forgot to mention that SQL Server 2008 R2 got to RTM.

If you are an MSDN subscriber you can download it there.

If you are not, you can download the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM – Express with Management Tools.

Brent Ozar wrote a pretty nice FAQ on the new SQL Server 2008 R2 features, much better than the “what’s new” and press release by Microsoft.

Feature conclusion so far:

  • nice new stuff for Business Intelligence
  • no new stuff on the engine and T-SQL front
  • watch your licensing when doing virtualization; the non-R2 is far cheaper for that

TeamViewer beta for Linux is available

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/04/29

The TeamViewer team announced they have a beta version available for Linux.
The current beta is version v5.0.8252, so it has newer version 5 features.

There are installers for:

  • Red Hat, Fedora, Suse, Mandriva (32/64-Bit)
  • Debian, Ubuntu (32-Bit)
  • Debian, Ubuntu (64-Bit)

And there is a generic .tar.gz file.

You can find them their Linux download page.

With the new beta, they now cover Windows, Mac OS, Linux and the iPhone.
Very convenient indeed!
