SP1 for AutoCAD 2009 - is it still a "Service Pack"?

The first Service Pack for AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009 is now available on www.autodesk.com/autocad-updates

There are no really critical bug fixes in it - at least for me. The most important fix seems to be the potential drawing corruption problem on PURGE.

What is not clear is whether all the hotfixes which were published before this SP1 are already included in it. And the main confusion point is the name of this SP1 - Autodesk calls it "Update 1". Maybe this is a new naming scheme for Service Packs but all other references to this SP1, the file name of the SP1 and user experience is about "Service Packs", not "Updates".

Well, I suppose so. Autodesk has done this in past Service Packs.
 
I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
