SSMS 2017 Is Now Available For Download

SQL Server

If you’re into that sort of thing

You can head over here to download it.

I just got it installed, and I’ll be updating this post as I find stuff.

In case you’re curious, this is a whole new install, not just an update. I had to reinstall some stuff to get it to show up in this version, namely Red Gate SQL Prompt.

Now you know it’s for databases

I’ll be semi-live-blogging and updating this post as I find stuff!

Make like a good DBA and hit F5 repeatedly!

So uh, you can still set up a Shrink Database task via maintenance plans. Real cool.

Thanks for keeping us in business.

Oh, there’s also a bug that Brent found.

It crops up when you try to back up a database with the GUI.

Is Backupless the new thing?

In case you’re wondering, you can still use Autoclose, Autoshrink, and Priority Boost. You can take the pleats out of the khakis…

Alright, so two crashes and some perilously long waits for stuff to load later, I’m gonna call it a day on live blogging stuff.

Time to go hunt down those new adaptive join operators in query plans!

If anyone is missing Utility Explorer in SSMS 2017, there’s a Connect Item over here you can vote on to bring it back.

Thanks for reading!
