Cumulative Update packages for SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM & SQL Server 2008 SP1

Here is the news on Cumulative Update release news on SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM & SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1.

First let us go through SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM cumulative update, release consist the  only hotfixes that were released in Cumulative Update 5, 6, & 7 for SQL Server 2008 SP1. Cumulative Update 1 for SQL 2008 R2 RTM is only intended as a post-RTM rollup for Cumulative Update 5-7 for the release version of SQL Server 2008 SP1 customers who plan to upgrade to SQL Server 2008 R2 and still keep the hotfixes from Cumulative Update 5-7 for the release version of SQL Server 2008 SP1. No new hotfixes have been included in this cumulative update. The relevant KBA for CU#1 is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981355/en-us here.

Again referring to SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 cumulative update, this will have the most recent cumulative update package that contains all of the SQL Server 2008 hotfixes that have been released since the initial release of SQL Server 2008 SP1. This is the KBA for CU#8 release http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981702/en-us  link.
