SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU #9 is available
The SQL Server Release Services team recently announced that they have released a new Cumulative Update for SQL Server 2008 SP1:
This update will bring you to build 10.00.2789. From the looks of the KB article, a healthy dose of fixes are made available in this update (a lot more than it looks like are in store for SP2).
KB #2083921 : Cumulative update package 9 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1
Note that if you have installed the SQL Server 2008 SP2 CTP (which I talked about previously), you should not attempt to install this update. It is likely that shortly after the final release of SP2 is made available, there will be a follow-up Cumulative Update that will be published, and will include all or most of the fixes from CU #9.

When you go to the KB article and select "View and request Hotfix Downloads," the KB article tries to do you a favor, and presents you only downloads for the platform you're currently running. So in your case, you've probably gone looking for the 64-bit hotfix but you're using an x86 machine. Here is what you'll see:
If you click on "Show hotfixes for all platforms and languages," you will get more options. I've highlighted the one you're after in the following screen shot:
Roger, please see my update. You're not the only person to be foiled by Microsoft's "helpfulness"…
Is a 64-bit version available?
