Announcing SQL Server 2019 Cumulative Update 1


The first cumulative update for a brand new version of SQL Server is always chock full of interesting bug fixes. Sure, Microsoft tells you to test the new version during the community previews before it goes live publicly, but it’s not enough – the real tire kickers hit after RTM. So it’s nothing new to see really fun bug fixes in a CU1 – buckle up.

And lots more. Now, does this mean SQL Server 2019 is ready for its moment in the sun? In the past, you might have been one of those “don’t deploy until Service Pack 1 hits” people, but remember, there are no service packs anymore for SQL Server, so, uh, yeah. Got get ’em, tiger.
