http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2881070

Download the 64-bit Lync update package now.

 

15 Fixes are listed:

  • 2985514 Lync 2013 signs out and then signs in every 30 minutes
  • 2985513 Lync 2013 crashes when you manipulate a pivot table field during an Excel worksheet presentation

Also two known issues with the patch:

  • 2932389 Persistent Chat file transfer fails between an external user and an internal user in Lync 2013

 

Prerequisites:

 

I saw some inconsistency with installing the Pre-reqs, Windows 8.1 x64/Office 2013 x86, Windows updated to current

    • kb2883052 installed fine
    • kb2817624 invalid baseline
    • kb2817626 invalid baseline
    • kb2881083 No product installed for contained

I’m not sure why this is, but will try to find out more. I suspect some of the pre-reqs are superseded by other patches now.

Using my Install-HotFixes script to install from a directory with all the hotfixes dumped into:
