Announcing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

This was a big day for us as Ted Kummert (Vice President for SQL Server) announced the general availability of SQL Server 2012 SP1 at the PASS Summit 2012 today. This is a significant release because it delivers important updates as well as new capabilities for Office 2013 and SQL Server 2012. We’ve already blogged about the new BI features and other goodies in the Community Technology Preview 3 (CTP3) and Community Technology Preview 4 (CTP4) announcements. No need to repeat these again. For a complete list of changes in SQL Server 2012 SP1, please read the What’s new document and KB article 2674319.
