Today sees the launch of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Project 2013, Project Server 2013 as well as the rest of the Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 families.
*** Update 2/26 I should also mention that unlike previous SharePoint and Project Server Service Packs - there is no roll-up - the Project doesn't include SharePoint and the SharePoint doesn't include Project - if you want both you need to install both. Thanks for the reminder Laksh! ***
*** Update 3/4/2014 - The slipstreamed installations are announced - http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2014/03/03/announcing-availability-of-slipstreamed-office-2013-and-sharepoint-server-2013-with-sp1.aspx - this means you can install on Windows Server 2013 R2. Before this slipstream version the pre-requisite installer would fail configuring IIS ***

Also there is a full list of what is in SP1 which can be downloaded in Excel format from here. basically SP1 is a roll-up of all Cumulative and Public updates up to and including the December 2013 CU and the January 2014 PU, as well as some other stability, performance and security improvements.
The blog from the Office Sustained Engineering team has all the information at http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2014/02/25/announcing-the-release-of-service-pack-1-for-office-2013-and-sharepoint-2013.aspx
Project Online and Project Pro for Office 365 users do not need to worry about SP1 – you are automatically kept up to date.
Thanks to all the engineering teams, as well as the customers, partners and MVPs who were involved in Beta testing of this release!

Hi Brian,Can you confirm if Project Server 2013 (and SharePoint 2013) now is supported to install on Windows Server 2012R2? The article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee683978.aspx has not been updated with that info.Best regardsJohan
You will still need a package Johan, that has been updated with for SP1, which I have not seen yet. A simple slipstream installation will not work as it is the pre-requisite installer that has the issues configuring IIS on 2012 R2. I'll post as soon as I see anything.Best regards,Brian
Here it is Johan - http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2014/03/03/announcing-availability-of-slipstreamed-office-2013-and-sharepoint-server-2013-with-sp1.aspx
Hello Brian, I did had some issues with the installation of Service Pack leaving my farm in an inconsistent state telling me that the SP was missing on all nodes in my farm except one. Very strange. Tried to uninstall the bits and bytes, but that is not an option. Once you begin with the roll out of SP1, there is no way back.Finally figured it all out. Once you install PowerView for SharePoint and you remove it afterwards, it leaves a trail in the config database. This causes issues in the prerequisite check of the config wizard. The magic happens when you perform the following command at each node (which will reset the configuration status of one node in the SharePoint config database) :Get-SPProduct -localAfter running that command successfully on each node you can complete the conifguration wizard.
