from wikipedia:

ervice Pack 2

Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista was released to manufacturing on April 28, 2009,[73] and released to Microsoft Download Center and Windows Update on May 26, 2009.[74] In addition to a number of security and other fixes, a number of new features have been added. However, it did not include Internet Explorer 8:[75][76]

* Windows Search 4.0 (currently available for SP1 systems as a standalone update)
* Feature Pack for Wireless adds support for Bluetooth 2.1
* Windows Feature Pack for Storage enables the data recording onto Blu-ray media
* Windows Connect Now (WCN) to simplify Wi-Fi configuration
* Improved support for resuming with active Wi-Fi connections
* Enables the exFAT file system to support UTC timestamps, which allows correct file synchronisation across time zones
* Support for ICCD/CCID smart cards
* Support for VIA 64-bit CPUs
* Improves audio and video performance for streaming high-definition content
* Improves Windows Media Center (WMC) in content protection for TV[77]
* Provides an improved power management policy that is up to 10% more efficient than the original in some configurations

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 share a single service pack binary, reflecting the fact that their code bases were joined with the release of Server 2008.[75] Service Pack 2 is not a cumulative update meaning that Service Pack 1 must be installed first.
