As many times in our daily business, we’re used to ask for “Build number” rather than “Service Pack or Patch level”. Because of some confusion of the customers and for transparency I’ll provide here a list of the most relevant Build numbers and its related KB Numbers.
Note: Service Pack 1 for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 retired on July 13, 2010. You must upgrade to Service Pack 2, which is a requirement for all following Cumulative Updates, later than August 2010. Since August 2010 update, the SP2 installed is mandatory! The new update packages are not containing any other hotfixes prior to SP2! You will see this on the smaller sizes of the packages.
Important: After applying the preceding updates, run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard as usual or “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” in command line. This needs to be done on every server in the farm with SharePoint installed. For more information on how to install updates for MOSS7WSS, please see here: "All about updating..."

What happened to the CU Packages since June 2010 ?
Some of you probably might have noticed that some CU’s are not available anymore:
- June 2010 CU- August 2010 CU- October 2010 CU- December 2010 CU
Due to a series of regressions, these fixes were pulled back to prevent customers from running into problems.From KB 2276472: Hotfix information
A recently discovered issue affecting Project plans that contain baselines was fixed and included in the Project Server 2007 February 2011 cumulative update package. This issue was traced back to have originated in the Project Server 2007 April 2010 cumulative update package. As our cumulative updates are incremental, this issue also affected the June, August, October, and December server updates.We recommend that customers install the latest cumulative update packages that are described in KB953878. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
953878 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953878/ ) Cumulative updates are available from the Microsoft Office team to fix reported problems
The last CU from February 2011 is recommended as it contains the regression fixes or any other Build, later than Febr. 2011
If you are planning to install a higher patch level than your current, please ensure that you are at least being on SP2 alreadyand install then on top of this straight away the Febr.CU 2011. or any higher build.
Background Information of Cumulative Update (CU):
