Windows Server 2012 was released today!! The schema version did not change from the RC version. The final version is 56
I once again used adfind to quickly find the schema version.
The final Active Directory Schema version table is listed below.
|Windows Server 2012||56|
|Windows 2008 R2||47|
|Windows 2003 R2||31|

You can download an evaluation copy of Windows Server 2012 and go start to learn and have fun. This will be an OS that most of us will be using for the next 10+ years and it is an exciting day for those of us in the Windows Server world. Thanks to all the hard work put in by the many people at Microsoft that made today happen.
