The final Cumulative Update for SQL Server 2008 SP3

Microsoft has released the final Cumulative Update (#17) for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3.
  • Build # 10.00.5861
  • KB Article: KB #2958696
  • 9 public fixes
  • Relevant for builds 10.00.5500 -> 10.00.5860
  • NOT for SQL Server 2008 R2 (10.50.xxxx)

Once more, this is the last cumulative update for SQL Server 2008. Both 2008 and 2008 R2 exit mainstream support in July of this year. That's two months away.
