Cumulative Updates for SQL Server 2005 are available
Last week Microsoft snuck in some updates for the SQL Server 2005 product line. Cumulative Update #7 for Service Pack 3 brings you to build # 9.00.4273, while Cumulative Update #17 for Service Pack 2 brings you to 9.00.3356. The only fix for the latter involves MDX queries, so if you aren't using Analysis Services, you aren't getting much — if you're still on SP2, then perhaps it is time to move to the SP3 line, where this round of cumulative updates bring you no less than 23 fixes.
Also, if you have any interest in seeing one last service pack for SQL Server 2005 (SP4), go vote for Steve Jones' Connect item #522122!
