SQL Server 2012 Release date

Anyone knows when SQL Server 2012 is going to be release in this year?

Also can someone confirm that SQL 2012 will be the only version coming out after SQL 2008?

Thanks

Well, SQL Server 2012 RC0 was released on 17 Nov. 2011, hopefully that means that SQL Server 2012 will be released early 2012 but usually, SQL Server is released in August, so i think August of 2012.

If you tend to think like the Mayans, then there will not be another verision after 2012. =p

SQL 2012 Launch is at Las Vegas on March 26-29.

SQL 2008 R2 (10.5) was released after SQL 2008 (10.0)

Of course, on my planet, when my calendar ends, I tend to get a new calendar rather than assume that time will be ending.  :-)

so basically should I think that SQL 2012 (RC0) is trial version and full version is expected to be release in spring?

Not exactly.  RC (Release candidate) referes to a version with potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless fatal bugs emerge.  This is the stage of product stabilisation, all product features have been designed, coded, and tested through a couple of beta cycles with no known showstoppper-class bugs.
