Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3127936 for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013, which was released on November 8, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • This fix allows admins to change the way that the URLs are normalized in the crawler. By default, the case is preserved. With this fix, the admins can choose to have case-insensitive URLs, so URLs that only differ in case will be considered the same.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • User profiles are migrated incorrectly during WSSSync.
    • Accessibility issue for the style gallery within the ribbon.
    • In Chrome, when there's nothing in the <li> element, the cursor jumps in the Content Editor Web Part.
    • After you add the TableBinding object on matrix, Excel 2013 crashes if the source is already bound and then converted to matrix.
    • When you try to add a database to an availability group, there's no logic to check whether the database is already backed up. This results in taking redundant backups.
    • If a large list has many items that have uniquely-defined permissions, list view pages take a long time to display results.
    • An error occurs when you unpublish a document with the last published version.
    • Fixes an issue in which the Access Control Lists (ACLs) in a site are updated when you change the permission level title.
