Note: There are some common fixes ported between this release, SQL Server 2016 SP2 CU8, and the upcoming SQL Server 2017 RTM CU16.  The KB docs for these common fixes will have links to the fix in both SQL Server 2016 SP2 CU8 and SQL Server 2017 CU16 releases.  For a small window of time, the SQL Server 2017 CU16 link will not work until the SQL Server 2017 CU16 package is released on 8/1.
