Its 1st June 2016 and finally Microsoft has released SQL Server 2016 full and final version, and is available for download!
Sql Server 2016 Native Client 32 Bit Download
And it says that SQL Server 2016 will be available both in 32 and 64 bit. But I cannot see 32 bit for CTP download. May be the evaluation edition would have 32 bit. Yes you can wait for official confirmation. Which makes me believe they will have 32 bit edition but you have to install it on 64 bit. Download Instructions. First navigate to one of the download links below, then: Scroll down to the 'MICROSOFT SQL SERVER CONNECTIVITY FEATURE PACK COMPONENTS' section (it's far down) Under the 'Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client' heading. Download Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express (32-bit) for Windows to manage SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with advanced services. The cumulative update released on 15 November 2016 includes an x86 installer (SQL2016RTMCU3x86SQLServer2016-KB3194717-x86.exe). Cumulative Update Package 3 for SQL Server 2016 RTM - KB3205413. I don't have a 32-bit machine to test this out on but would like to know what the situation is with 32-bit support for SQL Server 2016. This download site contains the following packages and service patches for the Microsoft SQL Server 2016 SP2 release: Microsoft SQL Server 2016 SP2 Update - this package contains the Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 2 update to be applied to existing SQL Server 2016 installations.
Exactly a year back the first CTP version of SQL Server 2016 was released and we got a chance to get a glimpse of the new features coming in. Then after every month or two Microsoft kept rolling out the CTP versions with more new features, enhancements, and bug fixes on the previous CTP builds.

–> One big Update on SSMS:
From now onward SSMS i.e. SQL Server Management Studio will not be part of SQL Server installation. This has to be installed separately via the SSMS download page, or from the Installation Center which will download SSMS from online.
As per Microsoft, this is basically to support the move to make a universal version of SSMS for both SQL Server on-Prem & Azure SQL Database, that will ship every month or so.
Check my previous post on installing SSMS separately.
