The first cumulative update (CU) for SharePoint 2010 is here. The CU was promised in to be ready in June, but have not arrived until a couple of days ago. I’ve been on vacation (last day today actually) so it fits perfect starting out next week with patching some farms.

As you probably know by now the Microsoft SharePoint Team has improved the update cycle a bit compared to its predecessor. If you are not aware of the changes or need to get up to speed on the differences head on over to TechNet and read the following articles:

You can also always find the latest patch information for SharePoint at the TechNet Updates fro SharePoint 2010 Products page.

The June CU consist of the following KB articles and downloads:

  • SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (Osrchwfe-x-none.msp, Pplwfe-x-none.msp, Spswfe-x-none.msp), KB983497 Patch for SharePoint Server
