Is there any news on when we can expect a new version of SSIS?
We are in the early planning stages of a new data warehouse and I'd like to know if SSIS 2008 will be replaced soon.

I am trying to use a custom assembly (compiled with VS 2005 framework 2.0) with SSIS 2008. I understand that I need to put this Assembly in the GAC. I initially attempted to do this using the GACUtil, but I apparently only have version 1.1
of GACUtil intalled on my development PC. Shouldn't version 2.0 have been installed as part of VS 2005?
So I then tried simply copying the dll into the GAC folder using windows explorer. Well, the dll is now visibly in the GAC folder, but I cannot see it from either VS 2005 or BIDS 2008. Does that mean I do need to use GACUtil 2.0 or higher to
install the DLL into the GAC? If so, is there any place on the Web that I can download it?

The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager "Excel Connection Manager" failed with error code 0xC00F9304. There may be error messages posted before this with more information on why the AcquireConnection method call failed.

Specifically, my question relates to the requirement of the Smart Diff feature of the BIDS Helper VS add-in, namely, that it can be activated only if the client is VSS or TFS Source Control. If one had
Visual Source Safe installed on one's system, but did not use it to manage SSIS Packages, i.e., the latter are not Checked-In to VSS, can the Smart Diff feature be operable?
OK, I'm confused. I've set up a formview with a Linqdata source to allow users to edit records. When I run it, edit data and submit, it blows up and tells me "Linq datasource6 does not support the Select property when the Delete, Insert or Update operations are enabled." I googled that warning and saw a couple of posts on this forum saying the problem is the slect statement has to be removed from the Linq data source for it to allow updates.
But if I remove the select statement then how do I show the user specific info on pageload? plus I thought the two way databind was an advantge of the datasource control.

The next version of Microsoft SQL Server, code-named "Yukon," represents quite a few steps forward in the evolution of XML integration. Yukon supports native storage of XML data using the XML data type, which makes it possible to run native queries on XML data using the emerging industry standard XQuery language. Data integrity of the XML data type can be enforced through schema validation and XML-based check constraints, and special indexes can be defined that help speed up queries. In addition, Yukon has the built-in ability to expose its data through Web services. This article discusses these and other XML features of Yukon.

Windows CE .NET, the newest member of the .NET family, includes a number of improvements over previous versions of Windows CE. For example, there are quite a few new APIs and enhancements to security and connectivity, the user interface, the kernel, and the emulator. In addition, DirectX support has been added and C++ in Windows CE .NET now supports C++ exceptions, STL, and runtime type information. In this article the author takes a tour of Windows CE .NET, starting with the New Platform Wizard that allows you to code for your choice of devices. A sample application is included that locates features on portable devices so the reader knows what's available before writing code.

Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

In this article the author modifies an industry standard middle-tier application server benchmark called Nile. The goal was to get it to build and run correctly on the 64-bit edition of the Microsoft .NET Advanced Server running on computers with Intel Itanium processors and still build as a 32-bit version to run on Pentium class x86 processors. While modifying Nile, the author discovered some of the tips he presents here. As the article explains, when modifying code for 64-bit Windows, data types are the key to success. The article discusses which types to use and when, along with new data types and the importance of memory alignment.
