The Cumulative Update 1 carries the build number 13.0.4411.0 and contains a number of hotfixes addressing a variety of different features of the application.

Microsoft has recommended users to download and install the latest cumulative update available

  • Each new CU contains all the fixes that were included with the previous CU for the installed version/Service Pack of SQL Server.
  • Microsoft recommends ongoing, proactive installation of CUs as they become available:
    • SQL Server CUs are certified to the same levels as Service Packs, and should be installed at the same level of confidence.
    • Historical data shows that a significant number of support cases involve an issue that has already been addressed in a released CU.
    • CUs may contain added value over and above hotfixes. This includes supportability, manageability, and reliability updates.
