Some key points: Windows 10 only; works with existing versions of SQL Server and can be installed alongside an earlier version of SSMS; row counts on execution plans and some other plan enhancements; SQL debug and database diagrams are discontinued and have been removed.

Confirmed. I tried to install it on a Win7 machine yesterday, and ii didn’t work. Oh well.

I think I'm going to install it on my main PC a little later today. There are some interesting things in the article.

Removing database diagrams. =(
Why would they do that? Because now documenting your database is a hassle.

I expect most people don't use the diagram feature because it's no substitute for a proper data modelling tool. You can't really do design in SSMS because you have to write changes immediately to a database and what it does produce are nothing like real ER diagrams. Presentation capabilities are very limited and since there's no data dictionary functionality the diagrams are of very little use as a documentation tool.

Haha!

The cynic in me thinks that this was a deliberate tactic to beef up the 'What's New' section in this next point release!
