SQL Server 2005 SP3 is out!

Microsoft has released an early Christmas present in the form of Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005.

The SP can be downloaded from the Download Center.  Same for the updated Books Online.

As I’m a fan of version numbers, SP3 upgrades your SQL Server to version 9.00.4035.

Besides all the fixes from the cumulative updates, the service pack also contains some enhancements.  The one that caught my interest is the following:

In SharePoint integrated mode, reports typically run slower than the same reports run in native mode. The main cause of this latency can be attributed to SharePoint object model calls that are made. In SQL Server 2005 SP3, the number of SharePoint object model calls that SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) makes are optimized. This optimization reduces some of the latency when you compare report performance with native mode.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some downloads to do :-)
