December CU for SharePoint 2010 released

Just before new year, the December CU for SharePoint 2010 was release by Microsoft. There seems to be quite a few fixes in this update.

One issue that is resolved is that browser file handling was automatically set to strict on all sites created on a custom site template, not matter what setting the web application had. The only workaround was to correct this with a WebAdded event receiver – not too pretty solution.

Our customer stores e-mail messages in SharePoint sites based on custom site templates and need to open them directly in Outlook, which requires Browser File Handling to be set to Permisive, so we’re really happy that the issue got resolved.
