SQL Server 2008 has been released, but some BI developers will need to wait...

For those of use with MSDN or Technet subscriptions, SQL Server 2008 is available for download now and you have probably heard this from multiple sources already. (is there an echo in here?)

But for anyone that wants to work with the BI tools and who already has VS.NET 2008 installed you will need to wait until VS.NET 2008 SP1 is released (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956139) which will hopefully only be a few days. This is because BIDS in 2008 is based on the VS.NET 2008 SP1 build.

If you don't have VS.NET 2008 installed you don't need to worry about this, the setup for 2008 will work just fine.
