Hi,

It is very common to have doubts about the last build or the latest Cumulative Update available for SQL Server 2005 and 2008. These two tables represent the actual situation (1/7/2009):

SQL Server 2005

These KB articles can be used to know the latest builds publicly available for SQL Server 2005 (SP2 and SP3) / 2008 (RTM and SP1):

The SQL Server 2005 builds that were released after SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 was released

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937137/

The SQL Server 2005 builds that were released after SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 was released

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/960598/

The SQL Server 2008 builds that were released after SQL Server 2008 was released

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956909/

The SQL Server 2008 builds that were released after SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 was released

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970365/

 

My recommendation is that you subscribe this RSS Feed to get a notification every time that a new Cumulative Update or Service Pack is released:
