SP1 was published on 2011-03-15 for Win7 and 2008R2
You can read that SP1 is the most up-to-date SP for 2008 R2 at main site for that OS at
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/windows-server/default.aspx

and more details on download page at

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Yes it is :) But remember that Windows 2008 is in 2 types:

Windows Server 2008 (x32 and x64 OS) whch can be also called Windows Server 2008 R1
and
Windows Server 2008 R2 (only x64 OS)

these, are 2 separate products :)

for 2008 R1 are 2 SPs (1 and 2) for 2008 R2 is the only one SP1

Hope it clarifies situation :]

The latest Service Pack for Windows 2008 R2 is Service Pack 1
The latest Service Pack for Windows 2008 is Service Pack 2.

2008 and 2008 R2 are DIFFERENT operating systems - 2008 is based on Vista, 2008 R2 is based on Windows 7.  (MS did a poor job (in my opinion) in naming the product because it generates confusion like this).
