[EN] October 2011 Cumulative Updates Packages for SharePoint 2010 Family

LOGO__SharePoint2010About one month ago Microsoft published new Cumulative Packages for SharePoint 2010 Family. In the title I wrote “SharePoint 2010 Family” but in fact it’s Microsoft Office 2010 Family. These updates are for Office 2010, Project Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2010 (with some services) and SharePoint Foundation 2010. One month (in my opinion) is enough time break to start to think about this installation. If You are familiar to SharePoint solutions, probably You heard about “un-updateable photos” (for June update) or “Unable to complete upgrate…” (for August update).

What You can find in this update (in three parts | full list is here):
