What’s new?

Column based query acceleration is greatly improved. Computed values and aggregates are calculated much, much faster (at least by a factor of 10 according to Microsoft).

Improved performance for FileStream. FileStream was a technology that was introduced in SQL Server 2008.

BI has also been greatly improved with a lot more functionality.

Better programming interfaces.

A workflow approach has been included for better integration.

It now uses Visual Studio 2010 for its interface!

There is now an actual dashboard that is more responsive, a nice bell or whistle (whichever you prefer).
