Recent SQL Server Software Updates

The third week of March 2018 has seen a plethora of SQL Server related software updates from Microsoft. These include:

SQL Server 2017 CU5

SQL Server 2016 SP1 CU8

SQL Server 2014 SP2 CU11

This list covers all of the currently supported branches of these major versions of SQL Server, meaning that if you are on a different branch of one of these versions (such as SQL Server 2014 SP1 for example), you are not on a supported branch and there won’t be anymore Cumulative Updates for that branch

We also saw a new minor release of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). The main purpose of this release was to add support for SQL Database Managed Instance, along with some bug fixes in other areas.

SSMS 17.6
