Improvements and fixes

  • Update SharePoint Server 2013 to reflect recent changes to the Cairo time zone.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • It takes a long time to upload textual files to SharePoint. This update introduces SPWebService.MaxRdcFileSize to enable farm admins to tune the MS-FSSHTTPB protocol and shredded store algorithm to better support large files.
    • After you add a column that only has special characters (such as % or &) to a list in SharePoint Server 2013, the list data web service can't display the list data in the XML format. This update changes the logic of the unique field name generation. The list data web service will display list metadata if a column name contains special characters.
    • When you use keyboard to open a task callout box, the focus doesn't switch to the callout box.
    • When you use the SPFile.SendToOfficialFile API to send large files, you may receive the following exception:
      Error(s): "OfficialFile::SubmitFile: Encountered WebException when sending file.
      This update adds the timeout property to the SPFile.SendToOfficialFile API and it has a time-out of 100 seconds when you try to send larger files.
    • Application pools of SharePoint Server 2013 sites crash because of a heap corruption exception in certain conditions. Therefore, these SharePoint Server 2013 sites can't be accessed.
    • Screen readers can't detect the sort or filter state of list views in SharePoint Server 2013.
    • You have versioning enabled on a document library. You were be unable to control how frequently a new version of an OneNote Notebook Section file will be created. This update introduces the SPWebService.OneNoteVersionIntervalMinutes (default value 60*24=1 day) property to enable administrators to control how frequently versions of OneNote Notebook sections are created.
    • You can't use a screen reader to navigate to the questions of a survey and respond to the survey.
    • After you delete a SharePoint web application app domain, not all data is cleaned up properly. After you install this update, you will be able to remove an app domain and add a new one on a different zone.
    • When you try to edit or open a document in a document library in Chrome, the document can only be opened in Office Web Apps but not in Office 2013 applications.
