VSTS Development & Database Editions to Merge!

VSTS2008 Database Edition の箱An early Christmas present from our friends in Redmond! Beginning October 1, 2008 subscribers to VSTS Developer Edition and Database Edition will have access to the additional SKU. This was reported this week over at the MSDN VS 2010 & .NET Framework 4.0 overview page, but you don’t have to wait until Visual Studio 2010 is released.

Well that is just an awesome announcement and kudos to MS for listening to the community feedback about the multiple hats people wear on projects. I’m sure that this will lead to more teams actually using the Database edition functionality on their project which offers great source code integration for their database scripts not to mention T-SQL unit testing and test data generation.
