SQL SERVER – What is not in SQL SERVER 2014 CPT1 – Deprecated Features
It is not a big surprise that some of the items/features are missing in this new version – SQL Server 2014.
- SSDT BI is not part of installation. We have to download separately from the Microsoft Download Center.
- VIA protocol is not available in this new version
4. Missing/Deprecated Data types : timestamp, text, ntext and image
I think, this CTP1 version does not exclude everything as said in the deprecated or not supported features list. So, at-least in this preview version we should just use this to explore the new features and get experienced.
