October Updates out now for Project and Project Server 2010 and 2013

I posted over on the Project Support blog at http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2015/10/14/project-server-2010-and-2013-october-2015-pu-announcement.aspx no Project Server 2010 updates – and just a reminder that Project 2010 and Project Server 2010 ended mainstream support just this past week.  This means we won’t be taking any further non-security fixes – so if you are still using this version it might be time to consider Project Online or moving up to Project Server 2013 – or reviewing the recently released preview for Project Server 2016, due out early next year.

No fixes yet for Project 2016, but some of the other 2016 client applications do have some updates.

Check-in pending?

One bug fix this month caught my eye – “When you force check in a project on a Project 2013 server, the project is still displayed as checked out in Project Professional. If you try to open and edit it in Project Professional, you receive an error message that states that the file in the local cache is damaged” – and looking at the fix this ‘might’ just resolve any continuing ‘check-in pending’ issues – as we are know looking at the server status of the plan when opening to ensure that any ‘checked-out’ information that exists on the client is validated.  Fingers crossed!
