SQL Server 2005 SP3

It just isn't available yet!

I can already hear you saying "But it must be coming any day now, right?"

Wrong

There are no current plans for releasing a new service pack for the very simple reason not enough people are asking for it.

So click on this link and vote for another SQL Server service pack! (and rate it also..!!)

Hello SQL Server community! Just wanted to let you know that your ask did not go unheard with the SQL Server development team. We do look at the highest voted suggestions on an ongoing basis. With SQL2008 coming to a close (don't miss the launch messages week after next together with WS08 and VS08!) we are actively planning our post 2008 projects. We will be able to get back to you in a few weeks with a formal statement regarding SP3.

Thanks, Matthias Berndt

In any programme 100% accuracy is not possible and there will be some bug. Hence I stongly recommend for Service Pack 3.

Mearly selling product will not help in long tearm; People are also looking for after sales services too in this competitve market.

Keep Voting!!! Smile

As we might find SQL Server 2008 on our horizon, still for years to come we will be working on SQL Server 2005. This is not only because the use of SQL Server has increased by leaps and bounds with SQL Server 2005 in almost all application in most of the domains, but also because there is lots still to be explored in MS SQL Server 2005. I am quite sure the development team at the Microsoft-end did not anticipate this overwhelming response to the product and the power they have unleashed. On another point of view, with the release of SQL Server 2008, I am sure, there is quite a lot of difference that is going to be brought about about how we anticipate its features, specially virtualization.
Also, there are few places, like the replication, where the team can work out to avoid re-initialization of the whole publication for a few articles, and a bit of care for prevention of errors due to setup of replication with scripts.
It is evident, from the above points that, there are few places which can be improved, to make it better in it's version. This will not only help us DBAs, but will also appease the requirements of the companies, so as to retain customers who would prefer to migrate to any other RDBMS than to MS SQL Server 2008, speaking from business point of view.

There is still no formal statement from Microsoft.

A quick version history:
RTM – Nov 7, 2005
SP1 – April 19, 2006 ( 5 months )
SP2 – Feb 20, 2007 ( 10 months )
SP3 - ? -> 13 months and counting.

Given that the two prior service packs include loads of new features that in reality haven't been patched, it would seem to me that SP3 would be a priority. I can understand that everyone is busy preparing for the release of SQL Server 2008, but that is not a good enough reason to forgo support on an existing package.

Sincerely,

Dan B
