SQL Server 2012 Compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • This seems ridiculous to ask, but what is the "official" compatibilty statement regarding CRM 2011 and SQL 2012?  According to Magnetism, there are some PowerPivot features coming in R8 and the MSFT datacenters are already hosting CRM on 2012...but I haven't been able to find any formal declaration.  Does anyone have a link to MSDN/Technet regarding this?
