Improvements and fixes
This update contains the following improvements in SharePoint Server 2016:
Adds support for the new Japanese era name to the Chinese word breaker to make sure that the name will be broken correctly.
Makes general improvements for notebooks that are located in folders that are synced through OneDrive.
Contains fixes for the following nonsecurity issues in SharePoint Server 2016:
You can‘t create a subsite based on a template that includes content in a site collection that has a retention policy.
Query Builder takes a long time to load or times out if there are many managed properties (for example, more than 10 thousand) in the Search service application (SSA).
Fixes an error when re-executing the backup and restore operations after executing the backup and restore operations with UI mode.
Fixes an issue in which resetting the role inheritance by using the SPWeb.ResetRoleInheritance method does not work on copied sites that are created by using the Copy-SPSite cmdlet.
In some cases, existing files are overwritten even if users don’t explicitly overwrite the files.
Contains the following improvements and fixes for nonsecurity issues in Project Server 2016:
Makes changes so that the first year of an era in Japanese dates on a timeline view shows as the special Kanji character (元). The Japanese date format is now consistent between the calendar date picker and the timeline view.
You can now update a task dependency lead and lag time by using the LinkLagDuration property through the client-side object model (CSOM). Similar to other duration properties (such as the Task.Duration property in the Task Object), LinkLagDuration accepts either a string or an integer value, such as "1d" or "480" to indicate one day of work.
After you change actual work values in a timesheet, you find that the columnar Total work values in the time-phased grid part of the view does not sum correctly.
When you query project-level information through the client-side object model (CSOM), read performance is slow if the Project Owner field is included.
