SQL Server Compact 4.0 SP1 CTP1 now available

Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

(Nice shot name!) SQL Server Compact 4.0 SP1 CTP1 is now available for download: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=29037 – is is also installed with Visual Studio 11 Ultimate beta. Installing this .MSI will replace your current SQL Server Compact 4.0 binaries in Program Files, and change the version to 4.0.8854.1.

No blog post or KB article yet, I will update this post when they become available. In the meantime, I have skimmed though the code in the ADO.NET provider, which reveals the following changes (all is just guesses, and it is beta software, of course):

  • New connection string keyword: “File Access Retry Timeout” – will reattempt connection open from 0 – 30 seconds, with a default value of 0.
  • Improved local C++ runtime verification.
  • SqlCeConnection.GetSchema bug fixes
  • SqlCeParameter.Add(String parameterName, Object value) has been deprecated.  Use AddWithValue(String parameterName, Object value) instead.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
