Project Server February Updates and O365 Release channels

I posted the latest list of Project and Project Server – 2010, 2013 and 2016 updates over on the Project Support blog –  I updated the fix lists too.

A couple of things to note:

    1. The SharePoint updates have some security stuff in them – so these will be coming out via Microsoft Update too – you don’t still allow your servers to auto update do you?  Better check and run the configuration wizard if you got the SharePoint updates!
    2. We often get asked when a customer will see a specific client fix if they are running Project Pro for Office 365 – and the stock answer is ‘It depends’.  What it depends on can be found here – Office 365 client update branch releases – and here – Overview of update branches for Office 365 ProPlus – so check which release branch you are on – and the blog post at gives a few details of some recent renaming.  First Release for Deferred Channel is my favourite name – “I want to see it first – but only the stuff that has been out for a while…”


More Office 365 news – February is also the month when we will be pushing out the 2016 version of the Office and Project apps unless you do local installs – see Change management for Office 365 clients for more information.
