SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3

SQL Server 2005 SP3 is just a Beta at this stage, however it is available for download here, and it includes all the patches released to date:


Not a huge amount of fixes, but a few for Reporting Services that caught my eye:

  • Optimised Sharepoint Integration, to make reports respond faster.
  • Connector to Teradata
  • Enhanced PDF rendering

On the subject of service packs, it has now been released that PerformancePoint Server SP2 “should” support SQL Server 2008, lets hope we get our hands on this soon.
