Cumulative Update 3 for ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1 and 2012 SP2 released

Yesterday (February 25th) Cumulative Update (CU) 3 for ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1 and 2012 SP2 is released. This update contains 23 (!) fixes for various issues including an update version of the SCEP client, and contains all of the changes from prior cumulative updates.
Here's a list of issues that are fixed, there are quite a lot of them:
-Administrator Console (4 fixes)

-Operating system deployment (3 fixes)
-Configuration Manager client (1 fix)

-Microsoft Intune and mobile device management (3 fixes)
-Site systems (6 fixes)
-Software distribution and content management (4 fixes)
-Settings management (2 fixes)

Additional changes that are included in this update:
-Endpoint Protection - Revised February 2015 anti-malware platform update for Endpoint Protection clients
-Supported operating systems - Mac OS X 10.11 can be targeted as a client platform for the following features: Application Management & Settings Management
-Software updates management on operating system deployment - A new optional task sequence variable, SMSTSWaitForSecondReboot, is available to better control client behavior when a software update installation requires two restarts. This variable should be set before the "Install Software Updates" step to prevent a task sequence from failing because of a "double reboot" of a software update. This can be useful when hundreds of updates are being applied in a single "Install Software Updates" task sequence step. (like on Windows 7 images)
-Reporting - Windows 10 is now available in the Upgrade Assessment Report (Upgrade Assessment Tool required)

Just install it in your environment when experiencing problems described in this article. When not affected by these problems, Microsoft recommends to wait for the next service pack that contains this update. Great that CU3 is available now!

This update replaces Cumulative Update 2 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 SP1 and 2012 SP2
