BizTalk Server 2006 has now been officially launched! So, what does this mean to you? It means a new build is available. It is the Community Technical Preview (CTP) build. I have been working with it almost non-stop for the past week now. Other then a few problems with the installation, it seems to be awesome! It is now available on Beta Place. The Beta 2 should be available in the next few weeks with updated documentation.
The best part of the CTP build is it includes four new BizTalk 2006 Adapters (Oracle DB, Oracle Apps, PeopleSoft, and Siebel). In case you missed the news last week, these adapters will be included in the cost of the Biztalk 2006 licenses!
