Latest WSS & MOSS Patches and Service Pack 2 04/2009

Good news for those of you who like the “pleasure” of patching SharePoint, we have four new updates for you, WSS and MOSS Service Pack 2 and the WSS and MOSS April Cumulative Update packages.  If you have a multi-lingual farm, you will also need SP2 for each language pack you install.

You can find out everything you ever wanted to know about SP2 on this SharePoint team blog post.  The April CU package is the post SP2 rollup package, which is the release that will contain all the updates that did not make it into the SP2.  You can find more info on the April CU, including installation instructions, on this SharePoint team blog post.

You can download all four server packages with the following links:
