The new spatial features in SQL Server Code-Named “Denali” CTP1 represent a significant milestone in the evolution of SQL Server spatial data support. New features include support for full globe spatial objects and circular arcs on the ellipsoid, industry firsts for relational database systems. The geography data type has achieved parity relative to the function and variety of methods that support the geometry data type. Overall performance, from spatial indexes to methods, has been significantly increased. These and other improvements to promise a significant step forward in spatial prowess of the next generation of SQL Server.

Slightly disappointed. Looks like most of the enhancements / extensions was made to the geography types only. At least the features of spatialtools is now included ..
Glad the indexing was tweaked with more helper methods.
Oracle and PostgreSQL are still miles ahead since they support 3D geometries.. Looks like SQL is only focused 2D GIS implementations..
Hope there will be a few surprises before the final RTM..

First I'd like to say if you haven't tried GIS Stack Exchange. Give it a try. It's a good resource to ask GIS questions aof all kind and get answers. We haven't had a chance to try out the new Denali CTP1, and probably won't be able to get to it for
