SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 is available!

Microsoft has released Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2012. Though so far it is only being made available for the x64 platform. You can download here:

And read about the fixes in the following KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2674319

And new features are detailed here:

The build # appears to be the same as RTM: 11.0.2100 is 11.0.3000. Which may mean it's just a ploy to bring on board all those folks who still think it's necessary to wait for SP1. I haven't tried installing it yet, as I'm still on travel, but please let me know if you have any issues.

Sorry, this was an April Fools' joke earlier this year but apparently it's kind of backfiring now. I talked about this update a little more in my post about the November 7th PASS Summit keynote.

      Since so many arbitrarily delay implementation until SP1 it may be a really good idea to do this for real.

      John: Perhaps they should have just released RTM as SP1 πŸ™‚

      Colleen, that is not Service Pack 1, it is Service Pack 1 CTP 4. It seems you downloaded from here:
      http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34700
      Instead of from here:
      http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35575
      Did you click the link in my post, or did you perform a separate search and download the CTP by mistake?
