I’ve been slow to get shows out this year but am pleased to announce that show 44 with guest SQL Server MVP Simon Sabin is now available for download from www.sqldownunder.com.

In this show, Simon discusses full text indexing in SQL Server plus some thoughts on learning MDX and on technical book writing.

Plan Caching Whitepaper for SQL Server 2008

Gail from the documentation team told me today that the Plan Caching whitepaper I’ve been working on for SQL Server 2008 is now available at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee343986.aspx

Thanks so much to my colleagues Andy Kelly, Itzik Ben-Gan and Eladio Rincion, and Microsoft team members Adam Prout, Campbell Fraser and Xin Zhang for tech-reviewing it.

It’s an update of the whitepaper “Batch compilation, Recompilation and Plan Caching Issues in SQL Server 2005” by Arun Marathe, targeted at SQL Server 2008.
