The advanced edition of SQL Server 2008 Express is now available for download. As was the case with version 2005 when this edition was first introduced, the Advanced Services include (in addition to the Database Engine, of course):

  • SQL Server Management Studio Basic (formerly: Express);
  • Full-text Search; and
  • SQL Server Reporting Services (limited to local reporting).

You can find the installation files and instructions right here:
