SQL Server 2008 R2 users can now test a nearly ready version of Service Pack 2 (SP2). What will you find in this little gem? Like most service packs, it is not designed to trot out new features, but to bat bugs, fix flaws, make up for mistakes, burnish blemishes... Ah, you get the point.
This pack has no less than 25 fixes, including many that have already rolled out and are now rolled up in SP2. Here are few highlights from Kurt Mackie's report:
"Microsoft listed three highlights to be found in the CTP. It's designed to fix an issue where charts in Windows 7 reports get inexplicably cropped. Another fix addresses a problem with 'hidden rows,' which causes rows or cells to get collapsed in reports. Finally, Microsoft added a fix for a caching problem associated with 'batch files containing the alter table command,' according to the company's announcement."
