SQL Server 2008 SP1 is Now Available

SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 is now available for download at the following location:


As always, read the release notes before you install anything, and make sure you install it on your test environment first.

The big changes in this Service Pack include:

· 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

Many organizations have a policy of "not installing until SP1" - well, here's your chance.
