Office Lens – Capture you physical world, papers, whiteboards, business cards, and let Office Lens clean it up and drop the image into OneNote.  OneNote’s optical character recognition helps you find the image when you search.

Clip to OneNote – OneNote Clipper, the easiest way to save anything on the web to OneNote with just one click. Think of it as your camera for the web, snapshotting any webpage you see directly into OneNote.

Compact message header in Outlook 2013 – We’ve taken all the feedback we’ve received and used it to design a compact version of the email message header in Outlook 2013. The new message header gives you control over the header information you see, so that you can concentrate on what matters most: the content of the message.

1 TB Site collections and unlimited tenant storage scale -  Now you can have 1TB site collections for OneDrive for Business and team sites: allowing your teams to store more content in a single location and infinite tenant storage scale – so that your organization can bring your content to the cloud without compromise.

Calendar Search in Outlook Web App – Calendar Search allows you to search your own calendars or Group calendars for events in the past, present, and future. You can also search for people’s calendars and overlay their calendars on top of yours for quick comparison.

Enhanced text editor in Outlook Web App – New copy-and-paste options, hyperlink and video previews, and table support in the Outlook Web App editor means you can do more without leaving your browser.

Support for SAML 2.0 federation with Office 365 – Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 is now a federation option for Office 365.  You can configure Windows Azure AD for use with SAML 2.0. Windows Azure AD already supports WS-Federation, WS-Trust and Shibboleth for sign-in federation. SAML 2.0 is an additional, commonly-used federation standard for user sign-in.

OneDrive for business improvements and new subscription – OneDrive for Business (formerly SkyDrive Pro) is personal online storage for a company’s employees.  It’s the place where you can store, sync, and share your work files across multiple devices with ease and security. With OneDrive for Business you can collaborate with others in real time right from within Office and edit documents from virtually anywhere via a web browser in real time using Office Online. Accessing your files from multiple devices is a cinch with native OneDrive for Business and Office Mobile apps (including Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS, and Android devices).
