Improvements and fixes

This security update contains the following improvements and fixes:

  • Adds the OneDrive default to cloud feature in hybrid scenarios. After the feature is enabled, you are redirected to SharePoint Online OneDrive site if there is any request for the onPrem my site (for example, access SharePoint OneDrive site).

  • Permission issues may prevent you from accessing a  content-type hub after the Hybrid Content Type feature is enabled.

  • Adds a term check logic to prevent the odd term that blocks the hybrid taxonomy replication timer jobs.

  • Improves opaque compound word breaking for the Thai language.
