Latest Builds of SQL Server 2016

Last updated: December 9, 2019

SQL Server 2016 was originally released on June 1st, 2016. It is the last major version of SQL Server to provide servicing explicitly through Service Packs (2017 & 2019 both only have GDR & Cumulative Update branches).

I highly recommend being on Service Pack 2, as the Service Pack 1 and RTM branches have been retired (meaning they will receive no further updates outside of critical security patches). To see why you want to be on at least  Service Pack 1, read this post and this post.

You can always download the latest CU for the SP2 branch here; see the table below for the latest updates for the other branches.
