From Mary-Jo's blog: SQL Server 2008 ("Katmai") will be released launched February 27th 2008, together with Windows Server 2008 ("Longhorn") and Visual Studio 2008 ("Orcas").

Read also Microsoft's Press release.

<Update date="2007-07-12">

Old title: SQL Server 2008 release date: 2007-02-27

Something very stupid happened to me in the title before the update! I put in the current year, shame on me!

But wait, that's not all. There is also something about the distinction between launch and release (aka RTM), thanks to Euan Garden for pointing that out on his blog. The release of SQL Server 2008 is set for somewhere in the second quarter of 2008 (source Michael J. Murphy). So mixing up the words launch and release was my second stupid thing.
