At Microsoft Ignite today, the SQL 2017 release date was finally announced for a week from now, on October 2. SQL 2017 is exciting because of the new Linux and Docker capabilities. Docker in particular will be an interesting one to see, particularly for dev/test environments where the ability to spin up and throw away a SQL server with your test environment could provide many benefits.
Have you been watching SQL 2017? Are you planning to use it? What features are you looking forward to?
