SharePoint Server 2013 March Update is out! And It’s an Important one


Following the Critical SharePoint 2010 Security Updates, Microsoft also released some updates for SharePoint Server 2013.. and they’re not small! And of course, the bigger the update the more features and fixes are in it!

Unfortunately, as of today (12-03-2013) the KB Articles haven’t given all the information , however I will be able to give you the download link and some spicy information!

Here is the info we got until now:

1. Due to a change in the package configuration introduced after SharePoint 2013 RTM the March Public update is a mandatory requirement in order to install subsequent SharePoint Updates

2. Thanks to Mahmoud Hamed we got some information here about the march update!

One of the feature updates of the March 2013 Public Update for SharePoint 2013 enables you to use multiple app domains in SharePoint 2013 environments with alternate access mapping or host-header web application configurations. Before the Public Update, you could only host one app domain and it had to be in the Default zone. You could not use the app domain on alternate access mappings or host-header web application configurations. The Public Update enables you to configure an app domain for each web application zone and use alternate access mapping and host-header web application configuration.

3. Here are the download links.. and they are BIG!

(Thanks to Trevor Seward for clarification for which update is for which product, Microsoft labeled both foundation and server as “SharePoint Enterprise”
