January 10, 2017, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3141477)

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • Organization Browser web part is out of view in the browser and it doesn’t appear correctly in the User Profile page.
  • If a list has an item on hold, properties aren’t updated for other items because the event handler retains properties of those items. For example, when you update the icon overlay of a document in a document library that has another item declared as a record, the icon overlay isn’t set.
  • After you make multiple changes to the same user in quick succession in SharePoint Server 2013, the Quick Sync job can’t be completed successfully.
  • SharePoint Server 2013 becomes unresponsive and a high CPU symptom requires restarting the server. Meanwhile, you can’t access sites or get extremely slow page load times.
  • When you create a new newsfeed post that includes an app URL with an incorrect protocol (http:// instead of https://), the newsfeed page is broken and it doesn’t display news. This update ensures any problem in one of the news item should not block from rendering the newsfeed page.
