April 2015 CU for SharePoint 2013 has been released

April 2015 CU for SharePoint 2013 has been released

by: Stefan Gossner

The product group released the April 2015 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2013 product family.

For April 2015 CU we have full server packages (also known as Uber packages). No other CU is required to fully patch SharePoint.

Be aware that all Updates for SharePoint 2013 require SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 OR April 2013 PU for SharePoint 2013 to be installed first.

Previous releases of the SharePoint Server 2013 cumulative update included both the executable and the .CAB file in the same self-extracting executable download. Because of the file size, the SharePoint Server 2013 package has been divided into several separate downloads. One contains the executable file, while the others contain the CAB file. All are necessary and must be placed in the same folder to successfully install the update. All are available by clicking the same Hotfix Download Available link in the KB article for the release.

This CU includes all SharePoint 2013 fixes released since RTM. The CU does not include SP1. Developers can install SP1 before or after installing this CU.

The KB articles for April CU will be available at the following locations in a couple of days:

  • KB 2965261 - SharePoint Foundation 2013 April 2015 CU
  • KB 2965266 - SharePoint Server 2013 April 2015 CU
  • KB 2965263 - SharePoint Server 2013 with Project Server April 2015 CU
  • KB 2965306 - Office Web Apps Server 2013 April 2015 CU - This is also a security fix!
  • KB 2965254 - Server Proofing Tools April 2015 CU - This fix needs to be installed separatelly

The Full Server Packages for April 2015 CU are available through the following links:

After installing the fixes, developers need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in their farm.

Be aware that the SharePoint Server 2013 CU contains the SharePoint Foundation CU. And the SharePoint Server 2013 with Project Server CU contains Project Server CU, SharePoint Server CU and SharePoint Foundation CU.
