Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (RTM) is now available [UPDATE]

Now that you can get Visual Studio 2008 SP1 RTM, you probably want to rush out and install it.  I would hold off on that until you read Bob Ward's blog entry, which explains the situation, and should help clear up some confusion on whether you need to install anything:

For those that are really in a hurry, you can get the core download here (this is the base installer which will download the files you need at runtime, based on operating system, edition, etc.):
