I've been working with SQL 2008 RC0 for a couple of weeks now, and something I've noticed that really sucks.  The Intellisense doesn't work against a SQL 2005 server any more.  I've been using the SQL 2008 UI exclusively for several months now (since the November CTP at least) and I've gotten...

A ran across a bit of a problem when upgrading my SQL 2008  CTP 5 (November 2007) SSIS Packages to SQL 2008 RC0.  Apparently Microsoft has changed the way that they handle the script tasks within the SSIS packages.  Because of this when I edit all of the script tasks within my SSIS package the...
