Lync 2013 September Updates

We recently released the September updates for Office including the Lync Client. Below are the links for both the 32 and 64 bit versions. We have fixed the issues listed in the KB articles below. Also included in this update are some new much anticipated features and one feature that was brought back after being removed (customer demand…we listen). Unfortunately this update breaks one thing which can be important which I want to make you aware of. If you have installed Office via C2R (Click-To-Run) you will get the updates automatically if you have updates turned on.
