The SQL Server 2022 Preview was made available recently. The CTP 2.0 is available for download here. You’ll have to fill out a short form with an email and phone number to get access to a 180 day evaluation edition.
The EXE will give you three options for installation: Basic, Custom, Download media. I chose Basic, although you do have the option to go back later to customize the setup. You’ll have to restart after the install.
There is also the SSMS 19 Preview available for install.
This edition (Database engine and SSMS) can run side by side with other editions of SQL Server, although I uninstalled the previous editions I had installed.
Here’s a video that covers the new features in 2022.
I’ll have posts later on the new features, once I work through to get familiar with them.
