July 2015 SharePoint 2013 Cumulative Updates and Internal Version Numbers

Well, its official – SharePoint 2016 will be entering pubic preview this month. It's going to have great support for integrating hybrid topologies. Hopefully better than th car-boat Amphicar hybrid.

If you're new to SharePoint, Microsoft rolls up its patches into a consolidated update every month or so. Major functional changes are usually only made as part of a Service Pack. Service Pack 1 was released (after a few false starts) in early 2014 and added support for Yammer, OneDrive and selective JSON syntax for metadata retrieval.

The March 2013 Public Update and/or Service Pack 1 are considered pre-requisite "baselines" for subsequent CU's – later CUs won't install if they don't see the March PU out there. If you get a message about "a required version of this product could not be found on this system" – that's why. Install a baseline version first.

Also, please read the manifests of what's fixed. There are a lot of things fixed in the early months of a release, and not all the fixes are equally stabIe. It is NOT best practice to auto-deploy the CUs as soon as they're released. Make sure the update fixes your issue, or at least something close, and always test before going into production.

SharePoint CU's can take a long time to apply. You can accelerate the process by temporally disabling some other CPU-hungry processes like search during the patch process. You can find details in Russ Maxwell's post on TechNet.

SharePoint 2013 release numbers can be found similarly to how you find them in 2010 - just go to Central Admin | System Settings | Manage Servers In Farm. Or, in PowerShell, use:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

$spf = Get-SPFarm

Write-Output $spf.BuildVersion
