Eight months after releasing SQL Server 2008 to manufacturing, Microsoft has released the final version of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for its database.

There are no new features in SP1, but there are some usability improvements. From a Microsoft blog post on the new SP:

"SP1 is primarily a roll-up of previous cumulative updates and there are no new features, however key improvements include increased supportability and stability as well as Slipstream, Service Pack Uninstall and Report Builder 2.0 click-once deployment."

SQL Server 2008 SP1 is available for download for free by existing SQL Server 2008 users.

According to Microsoft, there have been three million downloads of SQL Server 2008 since last August.
