Microsoft has released SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 2 Cumulative Update 1, which is Build 10.50.4260.0. This CU has 35 fixes listed in the public fix list.

As always, keep in mind that this Cumulative Update is only for SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 2, not for earlier Service Packs and not for SQL Server 2008.
