So, now you can start hitting F5 all day, every day on the article for CU #10 (KB #956854).  🙂

    No Uri, I do not have any special information about SP3 that you don't.  🙂  I think they have listened well and are going to put an SP3 together, but I would really expect that they meant Q4 in the traditional Microsoft sense (e.g. Dec 30th).  🙂
