I have to admit that I’m confused about the vast number of pages that contain information about changes required for Microsoft platforms. I’ve provided a concise summary here. If you don’t look at the Microsoft pages, just look at the bold text in this article.
Many of these pages were just updated by Microsoft today or within the last few days. Many of these pages link to one another, sorry for duplication, that’s The Web for you…
