In December, Microsoft launched the RTM version of Exchange Server 2013 to the general public. Today, the company announced that the first Cumulative Update (CU1) for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 RTM is now available to download.
In a post on the Exchange blog, Microsoft announced some of the new features, including a way to access any Public Folders that have been added as favorite in both Outlook or the Outlook Web App. It also adds a new Address Book Policy Routing Agent, a way for groups to manage groups and more. Naturally, there are a number of big fixes in this new version. The full release notes can be checked out at Microsoft's website.
This will also be the first Cumulative Update for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 under a new release model. Microsoft stated:
Unlike previous versions, cumulative updates do not use the rollup infrastructure; cumulative updates are actually full builds of the product, meaning that when you want to deploy a new server, you simply use the latest cumulative update build available and do not necessarily need to apply additional Exchange Server updates.
This will be the first release in Microsoft's plans for a quarterly release schedule in terms of its Exchange Server 2013 cumulative updates.
