In this last update Paul Flessner announced SQL Server Everywhere Edition.
I think this is real good news as this promises to be a small lightweight in process data store that fits the requirements when creating offline applications. And as SQL Server Everywhere Edition is in fact based on SQL Server Mobile it is just a set of DLL’s that need to be copied with the application, no registration. In short; perfect for a ClickOnce deployment.
Looking forward to the release. For more info read Paul’s update at http://www.microsoft.com/sql/letter.mspx or http://blogs.msdn.com/smartclientdata/archive/2006/04/06/SQLEverywhere.aspx and http://blogs.msdn.com/smartclientdata/archive/2005/07/15/439008.aspx
