New cumulative Updates for SQL Server 2008 SP2/SP3 are available!

On Monday, I completely missed that the SQL Server Release Services team published two cumulative updates for SQL Server 2008. I'd blame jury duty, but that didn't start until Tuesday, and only lasted two days. Well, better late than never.

Cumulative Update #8 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2

Cumulative Update #3 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3

As usual, I'll post my standard disclaimer here: these updates are NOT for SQL Server 2008 R2 (where @@VERSION will report 10.50.xxxx).

P.S. this is blog post #499. You're probably not counting, but I am. 🙂

    You don't need to "blame" anything.  Even with a five day delay you're still the best resource I've found for this information…beter even than a purchased utility that is almost always at least a week behind (and at times a month or two behind).  Thanks for this great service to the SQL community!
