New Cumulative Updates for SQL Server 2005 SP3 & SQL Server 2008 R2

On Monday, Microsoft released two cumulative updates for SQL Server:

KB #983329 : CU #10 for SQL Server 2005 SP3 (build # = 9.00.4305)

KB #2072493 : CU #2 for SQL Server 2008 R2 (build # = 10.50.1720)

Missing is an update for SQL Server 2008 SP1.  It seems the SQL Server Release Services team has changed the schedule up a bit, as previously they were releasing 2005 SP3 updates on one cycle, and 2008 SP1 / 2008 R2 updates on another.  It would be great if they could get all three branches onto the same schedule.
