That’s a mouthful.

Back in November of 2008 Microsoft shipped the GDR (General Distribution Release) for the Database Edition of VSTS.  This update changed the way the database is modelled internally and removed the need to have SQL Server installed locally.  You can check out a review of my experience with this release here.

The scope of the changes required at that time was such that we decided against updating.  I had estimated approximately one full day to implement the changes to our stored procedures and views that would have been required.

On April 21st of this year Microsoft has released the GDR R2.  This release contains fixes and changes to how certain things were handled that addresses many of the deficiencies in the previous version.  Microsoft really listened to the feedback from their customers.

With the improvements in R2, I had the entire thing modified and up and running in just under one hour!  Nice.
