SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 Released

SQL Server 2008 Grid v r

SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is ready for download!

There’s no significant new product features, consistent with the SQL Server teams commitment to focus on essential updates.  As such, SP1 provides a roll-up of Cumulative Updates 1 through 3 and some additional fixes.  It does, however, offer more significant improvements for installation and deployment including:

  • slipstream install, combining SQL Server 2008 and SP1 install into a single step,
  • service pack uninstall, enabling you to uninstall just the service pack, and
  • Click Once capability for Report Builder 2.0
