A few people have asked me about what’s coming up in the next version of Microsoft SQL Server.  I asked Brian Welcker about this (Brian used to be the GPM of SQL Server Reporting Services).  Brian suggested the following website http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/.  Reporting Services is covered at http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/reporting.aspx and Analysis Services is covered at http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/analysis-services.aspx.

Microsoft is also having a number of Launch Events for SQL Server 2008 http://www.microsoft.com/heroeshappenhere/register/default.mspx.  Looks promotional but may be worth attending, if there is one in a city near you.
