I got SP1 for 32bit SQL 2008 R2. Does 64bit SQL Server 2008 R2 have any service pack? Where to get the latest service pack information for SQL Server?
Thanks!

this CU (cumulative update) is pre-SP1, which means this is building up to the future SP1, but not yet.

Found CU2 only for 32bit platform. None for 64bit SQL 2008 R2. Please correct me if anything wrong. Thanks!
