New SQL Server 2005 Books Online download available

As reported in several other places... there is a new Books Online (July 2006) for SQL Server 2005. You can download it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sql/2005/downloads/books.mspx

You'll want to do so from a high speed connection as the MSI comes in at a beefy 123 MB. After you've updated the title bar should read "Books Online - SQL Server 2005 Books Online (July 2006) - Microsoft Document Explorer." Also, the Legal Notice should show a July 2006 date.

I can use this SQL 2005 online book without sql server 2005 installed in my system.

Yes, you can. The Books Onlne are not dependent on SQL Server being installed on your system. Also, with each new version of Books Online, it'll detect older versions of SQL Server 2005 Books Online and give you the choice to update them if you desire.

This is good to know. Bill Thater covers this in <a href="http://gruntdba.wordpress.com/2006/07/28/log-buffer-3/">this week's Log Buffer</a> too.

Thanks!
Dave.
