BizTalk 2010 R2

This is great! Some good news of a newer release of BizTalk 2010. Taking the name of R2, there is information flying around the MVP forums as well as the web of this newer product releasing 6 months after the Windows Server 8 release.

The big gotcha ? There is no disclosure yet on the Windows 8 release dateSmile

The good news is that there is the following information around which I have consolidated. Please note that these are *NOT* confirmed.

  • Expected to be released between Oct 2012 to Feb 2013
  • Work and share common code base with Windows 8
  • Work with VS 2011
  • Work with SQL 2012
  • Some promise of working with Azure Service Bus
