SharePoint 2016 Improvements

  • The time it took to patch and upgrade to the September 2016 and October 2016 public updates was much longer than usual. This has been fully fixed for the November 2016 public update by refactoring how we package the updates.

    If you haven’t installed the September 2016 or October 2016 public update, you can expect patching and upgrade to the November 2016 public update to take the same time as usual. If you have installed the September 2016 or October 2016 public update, you can expect patching to the November 2016 public updates to still take longer than usual as we convert the files installed by those updates into the new packaging format. As soon as that’s complete, you can expect patching to future public updates to take the same time as usual.
