Manageability Enhancements

Moving databases from one instance of the SQL Server Database Engine to another instance of the Database Engine is simplified by introducing contained databases. [More Information]

Programmability Enhancements

  • Full-Text Search : In Denali, you can configure a full-text index to support property-scoped searching on properties, such as Author and Title, which are emitted by IFilters. [More Information]. Adding to this, you can also customize a proximity search by using the new custom NEAR option of the CONTAINS predicate or CONTAINSTABLE function [More Information]
  • Introduction to Sequence : SQL Server finally has the concept of a "sequence" that Oracle has had for years [More Information]
  • Circular Arc Segment Support for Spatial Types : There are new methods for geometry and geography data types that work with circular arc segments. [More Information]
  • Extend Order by Clause functionality : You can specify a range of rows returned by a SELECT statement based on row offset and row count values that you provide. [More Information]
  • Extend Execute Statement functionality : SQL Server extends the EXECUTE statement so that it can be used to send pass-through commands to linked servers. [More Information]
  • New Collation Support :  A new family of supplementary characters (SC) collations can be used with the data types nchar, nvarchar and sql_variant. [More Information]
  • Metadata Discovery : The SET FMTONLY option for determining the format of a response without actually running the query is replaced with sp_describe_first_result_set, sp_describe_undeclared_parameters, sys.dm_exec_describe_first_result_set, and sys.dm_exec_describe_first_result_set_for_object.


Security Enhancements

  • New Role Management : Now we can create User defined Server level Roles [More Information]
  • Added New Encryption Algorithms : The HASHBYTES function now supports the SHA2_256, and SHA2_512 algorithms for encryption.
