SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4

By Press Release,

Service Pack 4 Is Out!!!

We got the announcement late Thursday night, but couldn't confirm things until Friday morning. Service Pack 4 for SQL Server 2000 is now out. A few items of note:

  • SP4 is the first service pack to service the 64-bit edition of SQL Server 2000.
  • SP4 adds platform support for Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition allowing 32-bit SQL Server applications to run on 64-bit hardware when using Windows on Windows emulation (WOW64).
  • SP4 provides customers with the latest updates and fixes to SQL Server 2000 released since SP3a.
  • SP4 provides enhanced performance, serviceability, and security to SQL Server 2000.
  • Includes a new version of MSXML version 3.0 SP6. With SP4, the OPENXML statement is updated to use a custom-built XML parsing technology designed to be backward compatible with MSXML 2.6.
You can download the it on the Service Pack 4 Download Page.

Actually I'm glad I didn't send this out Friday because as of 9:15am, after the supposedly release time, the page that we were given still wasn't live. I can just imagine how many emails I would have gotten on that one :)
