Microsoft releases patches and upgrades to Exchange Server 2007 and 2010
Yesterday Microsoft release the long-awaited service pack 3 for Exchange Server 2010. Service pack 3 is a requirement for interoperability and migrations to Exchange Server 2013 – a roadblock that has now been removed. In addition to Exchange 2013 co-existence service pack 3 introduces support for Windows Server 2012, Internet Explorer 10, and as always, includes current and previous bug fixes.
In addition to service pack 3, Microsoft release RU 6 for Exchange Server 2010 sp2 and RU 10 for Exchange Server 2007 sp3. Interestingly RU 10 for Exchange Server 2007 introduces co-existence with Exchange Server 2013 as well removing the migration roadblock for 2007. RU6 for Exchange Server 2010 sp2 simply introduced bug fixes with no significant new features (that is what sp3 s for).
Below are the links and version numbers of the three patches. CU1 for Exchange Server 2013 is coming soon as well (and listed as a recommendation prior to co-existence but not required).
Microsoft has released CU December 2012 for Polycom CX500, CX600, and CX3000 Lync Phone Editions
Yesterday Microsoft released CU January 2013 specifically for Polycom CX 500, CX600, and CX3000 phones. The latest LPE firmware is for both Lync 2010 and Lync 2013. Multiple updates are included within the CU but the most common issues I saw with the phones and does seem to be addressed are white-horizontal lines or just a blank screen (sometimes white, sometimes black). I have not experienced those issues since the firmware update. The update list (and of course all previous updates are included and assumed and not listed) is listed below.
