April CTP has been released: What are the changes in the XML area

As many of you probably already have heard, we have publicly released the April Community Tech Preview (CTP) and have also announced that we are continuing with CTPs instead of doing a Beta3. I agree with Adam: This is good for getting both more and better feedback from our customers. And it allows us to be more flexible with providing fixes and new developments earlier to customers. You can get the normal SQL Server Developer Edition through the MSDN Subscription download and as always SQL Server Express (and VisualStudio 2005 Beta2) from the MSDN site directly.

Please continue here to read on what has changed with this CTP over the previous (February) CTP in the area of XML..
