Unlike other Service Packs from Microsoft, the SP1 of.Net Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 not only contains bug fixes and improvements, it also contains new technologies such as ADO.Net Entity Framework v1, ADO.Net Data Services v1, ASP.Net Dynamic Data and the framework and tools support for working with SQL Server 2008 that was RTM'ed last week.

Here are some useful download links:

While downloading and installing the SP1 of.Net Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 you can take your time to read the posts I've written during the beta time frame:

Overview of the Service Pack 1

ADO.Net Entity Framework

ADO.Net Data Services

ADO.Net Sync Services

SQL Server 2008 and Data Access Technologies

Note: If you were waiting for SQL Server 2008 and couldn't install it, now you can.

    Some are having aproblem with LIVE ID, I did on IE7 but not IE6 here is what I did, close all IE 7 instances, revisit msdn and login again, then it worked.

    My installation of VS2008 SP1 has gotten to around 95% and has been sitting there for a couple of hours. Is anyone else having a similar problem? I did run the VS2008 SP1 Preparation Tool, and I installed .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 first. Task manager shows it using CPU periodically. I did run IE at some point to check the news, and at some point I got a dialog from the VS2008 SP1 installation program asking me to shut down IE…so it appears as if it is still doing something.

    Apparently timing is everything. The install finished about 2 minutes after I submitted that last comment. 🙂

    Is (.net Framework 3.5 SP1) included in (VS2008 SP1)?

    Alan: The answer is yes. VS2008 SP1 installation also installs .Net 3.5 SP1.

    Do you know if there's a 3.5 sp1 redistributable for clients who used apps written with sp1? If there is, do you know where I can dl it?

    After installing the SP1 my SQL 2008 Client will not connect to any DBs. Anyone having this problem? Any fixes?
