Microsoft announced the public BizTalk 2009 beta today. You can snag it from the Microsoft Connect site. I’ve been running BizTalk 2009 on a VM since late summer, and while you don’t notice a whole lot of differences, there are some subtle things that you’ll notice. Recall that the big ticket features are platform specific such as support for VS.NET 2008, Windows 2008 and SQL 2008. However, you’ll also find the new UDDI services, better Visual Studio integration (e.g. Mapper debugging!), and some new queries in the Admin Console (i.e. historical data). I admittedly haven’t spent too much time on the newest features, so I’ll look forward to what the community at large discovers.
