Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals - SR1 (CTP)

For those of you who are lucky and are already working with VSDBPRO, there is a service release CTP available for download (KB936202). Make sure you read the release notes before you install.

Gert Drapers also posted some additional information on his blog.

One of the biggest enhancements, in my opinion, is the support for SQLCMD variables. This enables great flexibility in your deployment scripts.
