SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 CU3

Microsoft has released SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Cumulative Update 3. This is Build 10.50.2789.0, and it has 22 listed fixes. You must have SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 installed before you can install this Cumulative Update. Especially since Microsoft added some new functionality (such as some new DMVs) to SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1, you really should be making your plans to get on the SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 branch.

As always, I want to remind everyone that this update is only for SQL Server 2008 R2 (which is a separate major release from SQL Server 2008).

The Build matrix below makes the relationship between the builds a little more clear.

-- 10.50.1804        RTM CU9  --->            10.50.2772  SP1 CU2
-- 10.50.1807        RTM CU10 --->            10.50.2789  SP1 CU3

Personally, I like to try to stay current on Cumulative Updates as much as I can.
