May 12, 2015, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3039703)

Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3039703 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 that was released on May 12, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • Improves the translations of some terms in multiple languages on SharePoint Server 2013 sites to make sure that the translations are accurate.
  • Improves the translation of the term "selected refinements" in Dutch in Web Part settings to make sure that the translation is accurate.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • When you crawl external content on Internet web sites, it is impossible to pass the username and password for proxy authentication.
    • When you search content on a SharePoint Server 2013 site of which the URL path contains characters that use language-specific casing rules, no result is returned even though there are matching items on the site.
    • If the service account that is used for search is configured to use a different culture than US English, the modified date of items may be indexed incorrectly.

      Note If you experience this issue, a full crawl after you apply the update will index the dates correctly.
    • Alert email message always displays strikethrough for rich text fields even though the fields are not changed.
    • When you create a page for a page library in SharePoint Server 2013, you are not redirected back to the page library and you are unaware that the page is created.
    • No result is returned when you search content that contains the Italian prefix "un'" indefinite article in a SharePoint Server 2013 site in which the language is set to Italian. For example, no search result is returned when you search for "un'alternativa" by using "alternativa".
    • When you create a server name mapping from a file share to an http address and then crawl content, some items in the file share cannot be indexed nor returned in search results.
