SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 Express Editions and Tools - Community Technology Preview (CTP) March 2006
This is just out.

I'm quite happy that msft are offering more services with the express edition (Reporting and Full Text Catalogs) and I'm sure it will help win over more people.

Can't wait until it goes RTM:

SQL Server Express Edition with Advanced Services (SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE)
SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services is a new, free version of SQL Server Express that includes additional features for reporting and advanced text based searches. In addition to the features offered in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, SQL Server Express with Advanced Services offers additional components that include SQL Server Management Studio Express (SSMSE), support for full-text catalogs, and support for viewing reports via report server. SQL Server Express Edition with Advanced Services also includes SP1.

P.S Is it me or is 600GB Hard drive a bit high for system requirements :D
