Quick news for the day, SP1 for SQL Server 2008 has been released and you can download it from here.
As with most service packs, its a roll up of all of the hot-fixes since RTM. There is nothing major in terms of new functionality, mainly just enhancements to the installation/un-installation process and Report Builder 2.0 which was initially shipped OOB.
Read more about it on the Data Platform team’s blog.
In a quick bit of news, Scott Guthrie has posted an announcement declaring that the code for ASP.NET MVC has now been officially open sourced under the MS-Pl license.
Nice work guys – we appreciate it!
Ivan Porto Carrero (you may know him as IvanPC ) tweeted about some interesting work he is doing in building out a sample with IronRuby no doubt as part of his upcoming book on IronRuby, ASP.NET MVC and LightSpeed. Its been a while since I checked in on IronRuby, but having a skim over the source it looks like its coming along pretty well.
You can check out what he is doing over at Github – and in particular if you are interesting in using LightSpeed with IronRuby – great work Ivan!
