Microsoft updates

SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010 will be launched on May 12 and Visual Studio 2010 will be released on April 12.
SharePoint 2010 is 64-bit only. It requires Windows Server 2008 SP2 or Windows Server 2008 R2. It will not run on a Server Core installation.

It requires one of these versions of x64 SQL Server:
SQL Server 2005 SP3 CU3 (Build 4220) or greater (Note: SQL Server 2005 goes out of mainstream support in April 2011)
SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU2 (Build 2714) or greater
SQL Server 2008 R2

SQL Server 2008 R2 is still officially due to release “in the first half of 2010”, but it seems obvious that it will beat that deadline.
Mainstream support for SQL Server 2005 SP2 ended on January 12, 2010, and mainstream support for SQL Server 2008 RTM will end on April 13, 2010.

Microsoft has released SQL Server 2008 SP1 Cumulative Update 7 (CU7). It is Build 2766. There are 31 fixes listed, many of which are for SSRS, SSIS, and SSAS. They have also released SQL Server 2008 RTM Cumulative Update 10 (CU10), which is Build 1835. I suspect that CU10 will be the last Cumulative Update for the RTM branch.
