SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is now available. You can update any SQL Server 2008 edition.
Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains all the cumulative updates and fixes issued since SQL Server 2008 was released in August 2008. It also makes it easier to deploy SQL Server 2008. A few specific features have been added:
- A feature called Slipstream allows users to install the database and service pack at once, easing the process of loading the software onto hundreds or thousands of servers.
- Report Builder 2.0 Click Once eases deployment.
- Service Pack Uninstall is designed to allow administrators to uninstall the service pack separately from the database release.
You can get the download from SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1.
And of course there are SQL sessions at the Devdays:
