SQL Server 2008 SP1: Available Now at an Internet Near You

SQL Server 2008 SP1: Available Now at an Internet Near You

  • Comments 1

The long-awaited SQL Server 2008 SP1 was just released, available at an Internet near you right NOW:

SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1

The SP includes CUs 1, 2, & 3 (not 4), including “Key improvements in SP1 include Slipstream, Service Pack Uninstall and Report Builder 2.0 click-once deployment.”

This is unprecedented administrative functionality.  I’ve been admonishing the product team for the absence of slipstreaming since I was a customer.  Uninstalling a service pack?  Hard to believe—& not something I’d want to do.  (That’s why we test, right?)

The service pack has no new features, but provides an even more stable, robust build ready for prime-time.  This is what we’ve been waiting for!

For more information, see Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2008 Available Today.
