Cumulative Update 6 for SQL Server 2005 is now available.  This is build 3228.


Looks mainly like fixes to replication, reporting services, and analysis services.  But there appear to be some fun access violations and arithmetic overflow issues that are being fixed, too.

    On the other hand, I'm sure there is an article somewhere that starts with, "you may receive a severe error when you query a table with a clustered index …"

    Yes, I was surprised the article wasn't titled: "INFO: Why you should have a clustered index on all tables."  🙂

    I just wonder how it got this far into SQL2005 before someone got caught by this.
