New Version of SSRS add-in released for SharePoint 2010

Today a new download showed up on my RSS feeds and I wanted to take a minute to compare this new MSI file against the trusty old MSI I’ve used for so long now.   As you know, the SharePoint 2010 Prerequisites installer requires “rsSharePoint.msi” to be loaded before you can install SharePoint 2010.   Below is the OLD link for SSRS which most people use today for cool stuff like a PowerShell script to download all Prerequisites for offline install. as well as the NEW link.   The release of Service Pack 2 for SQL 2008 R2 seems to be triggering lots of new downloads so it might be worthwhile to make sure you’re SharePoint front end binaries match the backend SQL server version.   If patching SQL to SP2, then it’s probably a good idea to update the web front end components and look for the “4000” version number.

It might be a good idea to download the most recent add-in for any new server installs.  There appear to be updates to most all files, but “sqlserverspatial.dll” grew more than most possibly hinting at better geographic data support.
