After the December 2006 CTP of SQL Server 2005 SP2 the second Service Pack has RTM'ed today and is ready for download at the official site.
The official site contains links to individual downloads, here are a few essential short cuts:
- Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2;
- Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition SP2 (registration is encouraged, not necessary);
- SQL Server 2005 Books Online (updated: February 19, 2007).
The build number of SP2 is 3042 (the full version number is therefore 9.00.3042).
I guess this means that Windows Vista installations can finally be improved with a state-of-the-art RDBMS product. ;)
