This has been a tough year and we are supporting our teams to spend time with their families. Due to minimal operations over the upcoming holidays and new year, we will not be releasing any additional SQL Server Cumulative Update (CU) releases for the rest of calendar year 2020.  Applicable to SQL Server mainstream support products: SQL Server 2019, SQL Server 2017, and SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

 

If you have a product issue and you have confirmation a specific fix is scheduled for the next CU release, we encourage you to work with our support channels as documented in our help and feedback page.

Hi, to assist us in planning SQL2016 patching for the first half of the 2021. When should we expect the next CU release? Thanks
