Does anyone have a 'What's new in SQL Server {version number} cheat sheet?

Hi all

I have a client that is currently on 2008R2 and is looking to upgrade, and has tasked me to come up with a big grid of 'What's new in SQL Server {version number}' for all versions 2008R2 forwards.  The attached spreadsheet is a start.

Does anyone have one of these already made?

Note:  I am NOT looking for a collection of links that feature everything that a specific version does, or five links of solely what's new with a specific version, as I've already found those.

Thanks in advance.
Jim

Are you looking at a specific edition, or all editions?  I don't have a list, but thought you might want to clarify since features differ across editions as well as versions.

Client has an Enterprise license, so Enterprise only will do nicely.

Yes, as everyone knows us experts are great at mind reading..  :)

Also I asked some Microsoft friends this question, and all they were able to produce was everything available in 2016, where the word 'cloud' or 'Azure' appeared in at least every other sentence.

Pawan - Thank you for posting the attachments, but they have nothing to do with the question.   You'll also want to be very careful using other people's work without crediting them.

@Jim - I have those sheet since long and they have their authentic owners mentioned in the pdf.  Any one who will read those will get the actual owners work with their names. I am just spreading the word. I dont think anything incorrect with that. If you want I can delete my comment. Please let me know.

I have a cheat sheet that shows what everyone should do in the sport of ice hockey depending on where the puck is, and just like your cheat sheets it is completely unrelated to the question.   So regardless of correct or not correct posting them added no value.

If you'd like to show off your cheat sheets then an article would be a more appropriate forum, but then again articles have to be your own work and not something copied from someone else.
