#SharePoint 2013 SP1 on the way ... #SP2013 #Office2013

Thought of spreading this thrilling announcement recently published that SP1 for 2013 product is on its way and expecting to be released early next year.

Service Pack 1 (SP1) for the 2013 set of products including Office, SharePoint and Exchange.  SP1 will deliver performance enhancements, feature updates and improve compatibility with Windows 8.1. 

This will be applicable to both on-premises and online versions, and more details are expecting soon. Also i am trying finding any news related to Project Server, if SP1 is applicable to Project Server 2013 as well, and will update through my blog once i find something.

Update: 2nd March 2014
Service Pack 1 is released, and you can find the details here in this Blog Post.

Say hello to #Project and #ProjectServer 2013 Service Pack 1 #sp2013 #ps2013 #office2013

A quick note to spread the news that Service Pack 1 for SharePoint/Project Server 2013 and other 2013 office products is out now.

For Project Server 2013, you can download from below:

For Project 2013 client, 32bit or 64bit, you can download from below:

For SharePoint 2013 server, you can download from below:

Few important things to note here, that unlike previous versions, this time SP1 is not a roll-up version. Which means that Project Server SP1 doesn't include SharePoint side of update, and vice verse.

Also another important point, is that as part of lost resource fix if you have updated the required sproc, then you may need to update them again as SP1 will re-write those sprocs during installation/setup.

Also read the Project Client versioning details in Brians's post (same link as above).

And in the end as always, try all the updates in test environment prior to apply to production.

Happy patching.
