October 2014 CU for SharePoint 2010 has been released


The product group released the October 2014 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2010 product family.

Be aware that the October Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2010 is a Post-SP2 hotfix. It is recommended to have SP2 installed before installing the October CU.

Also be aware that in October no so called "Server" or "Uber" packages have been released instead only fix packages for individual components of SharePoint have been released. That means if your SharePoint system is on an older patch level than September 2014 CU you need to install September 2014 CU before installing the below listed October 2014 CU fixes in order to update your system to the latest patch level.
With other words: It is highly recommended to install SP2 and September 2014 CU before installing October 2014 CU!
See SharePoint Patching Demystified for details.

This CU includes all SharePoint 2010 fixes released since SP1. The CU does not include SP2.

The KB article for October CU is available at the following locations:

  • SharePoint Foundation 2010: no fixes released in October CU
  • SharePoint Server 2010: KB 2899490
  • Project Server 2010: KB 2899485, KB 2880539

The Packages for October 2014 CU are available through the following links:

  • Download SharePoint Server 2010 October 2014 CU: 2899490
  • Download Project Server 2010 October 2014 CU: 2899485, 2880539

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.

Be aware that for Project Server you have to install the SharePoint Server fixes as well!

    Hi Stefan,

    I have SP2 and July 2014 CU installed. In the Aug 2014 CU you said that we need to install the foundation and the server CU. Can I install this CU over the SP2 and July 2014? Or do I need to install Aug 214 also? (including Foundation and server)

  6. Hi Danny,
    for October CU you need to install September CU to get all updates as September CU contains the most recent "uber" package. It is not necessary to install an earliier CU.
    You can see this from the following sentence in this article: "It is highly recommended to install SP2 and September 2014 CU before installing October 2014 CU"
    Cheers,
    Stefan
