SQL Server 2008 SP3 CU8 Released

Multiple components of SQL Server were fixed in this.  Fixes for SSRS, Replication, Locking Hints, Security issues, etc.

Few interesting ones for me…

  1. Added support for varchar(max), nvarchar(max), and varbinary(max) data types in OLD DB Providers.
  2. This is interesting one, I always say no memory leak in SQL Server.  This shows SQL is not beyond that, “FIX: Memory leak if you enable the AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC”.  Although its rare I see customers using this, but please note this issue happened after SP3 (as per KB2778088)  But it is an important issue identified and fixed.
