What resources are good for keeping track of cumulative updates for SQL Server? I noticed that Windows update does provide a service for SQL Server.

I don't think cumulative updates appear on Microsoft Update. –  Joel Mansford Feb 18 '11 at 22:12

"SQL Server Version Database" on sqlsecurity.com (worth a look at the site anyway)

Edit: It's been around for years and I've used since SQL 2000 SP3...

Wow, that's nice. And to know when it changes, you can use WatchThatPage.com. It's got a crappy UI, but it works. –  Brent Ozar Feb 17 '11 at 17:57

I like the Microsoft SQL Server Release Services blog - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlreleaseservices/. It's updated very quickly once there is a new release and has links to the relevant KB articles too.

Definitely worth adding to your RSS.

There is a blogspot site that seems to be pretty update at http://sqlserverbuilds.blogspot.com/ which has a chart of SQL server updates for all versions.

I like that site. Also, Microsoft maintains various KB articles, such as: support.microsoft.com/kb/960598 –  Matthew Burr Feb 27 '11 at 16:23
