A major update to SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 has just been released, version 3.5.8088.0, disguised as a “Cumulative Update Package”. Microsoft knowledgebase article 2628887 describes the update.
The update contains updated Server Tools, and updated desktop and device runtimes, all updated to support Merge Replication with the next version of SQL Server, SQL Server 2012.
For a complete list of Cumulative Updates released for SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2, see my blog post here.
It is nice to see that the 3.5 SP2 product, with it’s full range of device support and synchronization technologies is kept alive and kicking.
NOTE: I blogged about this update earlier, but it was pulled back. Now it is finally available, and all downloads can be requested. (I have downloaded all the ENU ones, anyway)
