SQL Server 2005 SP3

… has arrived:

It’s obviously hot off the presses because the “What’s New document” is 404.

Very nice announcement. Thanks, Tim

It's interesting that one of the updates is a change to SQL Server Notification Services, since that component isn't available in any future editions (including 2008).

I thought that SSNS was still stuck in SSRS, just not called out as a separate component.

Microsoft's documentation makes vague references to some functionality of SSNS which is part of SSRS 2008.  I didn't spend enough time in SSNS to see what it offered that was not included in some other component of the product.
