As noted here SQL Server 2008 SP3 is in production release. You will see service packs released as CTP (Customer Technology Preview) packages/downloads, prior to seeing them released as RTM (Releast To Manufacturing). You will see CTP packages noted as such most of the time. Some instances the download link on Microsoft will show it in the name as an RTM package, and sometimes it won't.

You can keep up with what stage it is at most of the time by checking the SQL Server Release Services Team blog. As well once in RTM it will be added to the "More Information" section of this KB article: [How to determine the version and edition of SQL Server and its components][5].

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
