Microsoft was supposed to release the update on the 29th, but there's a compatibility issue with "Dynamics", which is a Microsoft business thing. Anyways, sites are probably unsure whether this is a beta release or what not.

FWIW this is the official SP3 release, but Dynamics compatibility is still not fixed. Automatic Update will not install SP3 on any machine that has Dynamics. A compatibility fix will be out later.

Yeah, I haven't seen anything about the SP3 release on Tech ARP, techPowerUp!, DailyTech, DailyTech, The Tech Report, The Tech Report, The Tech Report, The Tech Report or The Tech Report for example ... :P

Edit: Top of The Tech Report again.
