As usual, Microsoft has released non-security updates and bug fixes for Office 2016 and Office 2013 on the first Tuesday of the month.

A few caught our eye:

Late last year, Microsoft was caught out leaving a horribly vulnerable Equation Editor in Office for 17 years.  A new patch restores the MT Extra font so equations made with the old Equation Editor can be viewed.

Another patch updates the translation of the English phrase “forwarding a meeting” for other languages.

 

All these patches should be installed into Office 2016 or Office 2013 for Windows automatically as part of the regular updating process.

Here’s the summaries, combined from Microsoft’s various web pages.

  • KB4022156 Office 2016 — The update reduces latency and consumption for Microsoft Dynamics CRM add-ins, and adds support for the Dollar symbol as a supported delimiter to replace the pipe symbol in the UI.displayDialogAsync method.
  • KB4022158—  Office 2016 —  Adds support for the value DisallowWinCredsToBePersisted under the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Identity. Set it to 1 to not allow Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) credentials to be persisted in Credentials Manager.
  • KB4022159 Office 2016 – a typical Microsoft ‘grab bag’ of seemingly unrelated bug fixes into a single update.:
