Office 2013 SP1 Coming Early 2014

Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft's Office 2013-branded products will roll out "early next year," Microsoft said on Wednesday.

Affected products include Exchange Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013, according to Microsoft's announcement. The SP1 releases will include feature enhancements, improvements in compatibility with Windows 8.1 and performance improvements.

No other details were described, but Microsoft promised additional information near release time.

Microsoft has consistently indicated that service packs for its customer premises-installed products are still part of its product release cycles. However, under its new product release cadence, announced earlier this year, cloud-based product improvements will get developed and released first.
