  1. Hi Stefan,

    I just like to know if there is a January CU?!? If I remember right, Microsoft wants to bring out CUs every month, is this not right?

  2. Hi Andre,

    there is no January CU – I would have blogged about it.

    The reason is that between December CU and the date January CU would be released is a long vacation period where many people involved in developing and testing a CU are out of office.

    Cheers,
    Stefan
