Microsoft is now accepting nominations for beta testers for the 64-bit version of SQL Server 2000 (code-named Liberty), SQL Server 2000 CE Edition 2.0, and SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3). The SQL Server development team will use the feedback from beta testers to help refine and enhance product features. Any SQL Server customer can apply to participate. Microsoft manages newsgroups for each of the beta programs, sends status email messages, and uses its BetaPlace Web site to provide content associated with the programs. If selected to participate in a beta program, you'll receive download instructions for the Beta Kit. Microsoft asks that you install the beta software in your development and test environments, run your test suites, and provide feedback to the newsgroups on any problems you encounter. You're also encouraged to participate in the beta program online chat sessions and WebCasts.
