Microsoft officials declined to say whether there would be additional release candidate test builds distributed to customers before the product is released to manufacturing and encouraged users to download and try the release candidate, published on the company website.

The final version of the new SQL Server is expected to be launched in early 2012. Earlier this month Microsoft made the pricing of the product public along with some SKU information, including the fact that there will be a new BI (business intelligence) version offered.
