So Long, SQL Server 2005

Microsoft this week released the last cumulative updates for SQL Server 2005 and will end mainstream support for the product in a few weeks.

The Cumulative Update #15 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 contains six fixes, while the Cumulative Update #3 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 4 contains five fixes.

Although mainstream support ends April 12, technical support will continue for another five years for the latter service pack.

And plan ahead: technical support of SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 ends Oct. 11.
