Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 cumulative update package (SharePoint server-package): October 8, 2013

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

Summary


Cumulative update packages for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 contain hotfixes for the issues that were fixed since the release of SharePoint Server 2010.

Note This is build 14.0.7110.5000 of the cumulative update package.

We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and security updates that were included in the previous SharePoint Server 2010 update package releases.

Important notes about the cumulative update package
  • Microsoft Office 2010 hotfixes are now multilingual. This cumulative update package contains updates for all languages.
  • This cumulative update package includes all the server component packages. Additionally, this cumulative update package updates only those components that are installed on the system.

Issues that this cumulative update fixes

  • When you search for a user whose SIP Address contains an apostrophe (') in the Enterprise Search Center in a SharePoint 2010 site, you receive a JavaScript error on the page, and the presence indicator does not show the user’s presence information.
  • The title bar of pop-up dialog boxes in SharePoint 2010 sites are not rendered as header elements. Then, it is difficult for accessibility technologies to describe dialog boxes to end-users.
  • The functionality of profile property links does not work in a SharePoint Server 2010 environment.
  • When you search data in a SharePoint Server 2010 environment, some documents are not indexed.
