A belated note due to my annual holiday.

On July 15, Microsoft released SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 Cumulative Update 5. This is Build 11.0.3373, there are 30 fixes in the public fix list.

If you are running SQL Server 2012, then you ought to be on Service Pack 1 by now. If you are on SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1, make an effort to stay on the latest Cumulative Update, even more so than for older versions of SQL Server, because of the large numbers of significant fixes that are included in each Cumulative Update. (The RTM release of SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 was released back on June 18, 2012)

On July 15, Microsoft also released SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 Cumulative Update 12, which is Build 10.0.5844. There are six fixes in the public fix list.

I know many companies arestill running SQL Server 2008- you should be aware that only Service Pack 3 is still a supported Service Pack. SQL Server 2008 will fall out of Mainstream Support from Microsoft on July 8, 2014, i.e.next year.
