SQL Server 2005 SP3 Beta is available!

Okay, it happened a couple of days ago; sorry for not noticing.  But SQL Server Release Services / Sustained Engineering has announced that an SP3 Beta has been made available.  The build is 9.00.4028 and you can download it here:

This is earlier than I expected, and is probably why, unlike previous cumulative updates, no advanced KB article was produced for CU11 after CU10 (9.00.3294) was released.

      CU11 KB has been out there since CU10 was announced. See http://sqlserverbuilds.blogspot.com/ and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958735/

      Thanks Chris.  That's weird, because I have performed a search for it several times, and came up empty.  Maybe Google was not liking my browser choice those days.
      Surprising that they are already planning CU11 for SP2 when (based on Hugo's connect item at least) a lot of people will already be on SP3 by then.  🙂
