SQL Server Compact Edition
On January 17th, Microsoft released SQL Server Compact Edition (http://www.microsoft.com/sql/editions/compact/default.mspx). I'm very excited about this release as it finally makes the development of the disconnected smart client practical. It is ideal for any application that needs a very small but capable single-user database to ship with their product, and it is free. Not surprisingly, it has features to synchronize with Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access. There are too many features to mention in this post, but check it out!
