Cumulative Update 5 for ConfigMgr 2012 R2 released

Today Cumulative Update (CU) 5 for ConfigMgr 2012 R2 is released. It fixes 13 issues and 1 additional change is included. No need to install CU4 anymore when using this one.

Here's a list of issues that are fixed, there are quite a lot of them:
- Reporting (1 fix)

- Software distribution and application management (3 fixes)
- Site servers and site systems (5 fixes)
- Client (1 fix)
- Operating system deployment (3 fixes)

Additional changes that are included in this update:
- Endpoint Protection (anti-malware platform update)

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. The version that is displayed in the About System Center Configuration Manager dialog box is 5.0.7958.1604.

This update replaces Cumulative Update 4 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2

Note: Because ConfigMgr 2012 SP2 and 2012 R2 SP1 is released next week (may 14th) already, it's better to wait for the service pack then installing this one. Just saying ;) Why Microsoft is releasing another CU so soon before the SP is not clear to me. Do you?
Johan Arwidmark mentioned on twitter: Wow, don't deploy CU5 for SCCM 2012 R2, those updates are included in SP2 which is releasing next week, and SP's are more tested than CU's.
