I know this post is really late, two weeks to be precise, but I just had two customers who told me they had no idea that this RU was out due to the lack of information about it on my blog. Sorry about that, it’s been hectic for some time.

This time I have no personal “favorite” issues solved so I suggest you read what the Exchange team wrote.
