The SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is now available. Primarily a roll-up of Cumulative Update 1 to 3, Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) updates, and fixes to issues reported through the SQL Server community, SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 also includes capabilities for easier deployment and management of service packs, including:

 

  • Slipstream – You are now able to integrate the base installation with service packs (or Hotfixes) and install in a single step.
  • Service Pack Uninstall – You are now able to uninstall only the Service Pack (without removing the whole instance)
  • Report Builder 2.0 Click Once capability
