SQL Server 2005 SP1 CTP

The Community Technology Preview (CTP) of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 is now available for download from http://www.microsoft.com/sql/ctp_sp1.mspx. As well as providing fixes and enhancements SP1 also delivers new functionality for database mirroring as well as SQL Server Management Studio for SQL Server Express.  One thing to note is that the CTP license agreement precludes deployment of the SQL Server 2005 SP1 CTP into production.
