This service release addresses the top issues that were found through feedback from customers and partners.
This release includes the following features:
- Cross-database references
Support is improved to enable you to reference objects in different databases by using database project references or referencing a database metafile (.dbmeta). This support will reduce or eliminate the cross database reference warnings within a database project.
- Improved file support within SQL Server file groups
You may define files within file groups as database project properties instead of having to create files and file groups within the pre-deployment storage script.
A Variables page is added to the database properties. This new page enables you to define setvar variables for use in the deployment scripts. Additionally, SR1 supports the latest service pack release from Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (SP2). The SR1 also supports the Windows Vista operating system.
