Cliff Hobbs blogged on this already, but I wanted to give a shout out to Carol Bailey and Co for doing a great job on getting R2 out the door. I did play with R2 in Beta\RC, and I do like the new features it brings in to the product.

In all honesty i've not been an advocate of the R2 method of implementing new features, as it creates mutiple code streams for a product and just over-complicates things from a support perspective. I do understand features cannot be put into a Service Pack, so obviously this is quicker way to bring these features to market. I just wonder why are not going down the Feature Pack route anymore?

Congrats on getting R2 out the door! And Carol, take a holiday to celebrate!
