The full Office for Windows 2016 suite includes new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Project, Visio and Access.
There are not a lot of major new features in this release. Microsoft’s main focus with the new version of Office for Windows has been on adding team-collaboration functionality. Among some of the new features in the suite are coauthoring for Word, PowerPoint and OneNote; real-time typing in Word; new integrated Power BI publishing functionality in Excel; and updated search and navigational capabilities in Outlook.
Users who subscribe via Office 365 consumer and/or business plans which include rights to the Office apps also get additional, supplemental services and features, including Microsoft’s Sway digital-storytelling app/service; new Office 365 Groups functionality; and more.
As is the case with Windows 10, Microsoft is planning to fill out some of the partially baked Office 2016 features in the suite with regular updates in the coming months. Microsoft is still working on improving and syncing its OneDrive online-storage service. The promised new sync clients for Windows and Mac are due later this year. Built-in coauthoring for the other Office 2016 apps beyond Word is also still in the works. And Enterprise Data Protection, a security feature that Microsoft has promised for Windows 10, also will be coming for Office 2016 for Windows in early 2016, and the Office Mobile apps later this year, company officials said.
Starting with the Office 2016 for Windows release, Microsoft is moving to a new servicing model for Office 365 which is similar to the one it has put in place for Windows 10, with different servicing “branches” providing users with new Office features and fixes on a regular basis.
While on the subject of dates, here’s what Microsoft officials are saying in terms of availability for Office 2016 for Windows (and other related Office apps and services).
The Office 2016 apps are available in 40 languages starting today. Office 365 subscribers can choose to download manually the new Office 2016 apps as part of their subscription starting today. Automatic updates of the Office 2016 apps will begin rolling out to consumer and small business subscribers in October 2015, and to commercial customers early next year. Office 2016 is also available today as a one-time purchase for both PCs and Macs.

This update fixes the issues that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:
Jun 10 2015
Visit http://www.centos.org and download CentOS-6.6-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso
Burn DVD and start a minimal installation of CentOS
Configure a static ip-address if needed.
yum install mc
yum install ntp
Add the Asterisk repositories
yum install dnsmasq
rpm -Uvh http://packages.asterisk.org/centos/6/current/i386/RPMS/asterisknow-version-3.0.1-3_centos6.noarch.rpm
yum install asterisk asterisk-configs –enablerepo=asterisk-13
Disable SE Linux
sed -i s/SELINUX=enforcing/SELINUX=disabled/g /etc/selinux/config
Configuring iptables rules for my Asterisk server. Note: all iptables rules are temporary and will be lost after reboot until ‘save’ command executed (see below)
First, we have to clear all existing rules (if any)
Enabling SSH incoming connection. Assuming we connected to the Linux box using SSH, without this configuration remote shell will be unavailable. If it happen – don’t save rules and reboot server remotely, it resets rules. Protocol on TCP, port 22
iptables -A INPUT -s 192.168.10.0/23 -p tcp –dport 22 -j ACCEPT
Enable incoming traffic for connection we establishing. This allow to establish outgoing TCP connections
iptables -A INPUT -m state –state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
SIP on UDP port 5060. Other SIP servers may need TCP port 5060 as well
iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp –dport 5060 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 5060 -j ACCEPT
Allow incoming RTP traffic (related to the port range in /etc/asterisk/rtp.conf)
iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp –dport 10000:20000 -j ACCEPT
Allow local communication.
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
Having ICMP protocol enabling could be useful for troubleshooting purpose, so let’s enable it
iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
Now we have to configure default input rule – to drop all traffic not matching other rules
iptables -P INPUT DROP
Disable routing, I connected to one network only
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
Allow all outgoing traffic
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
We done with rules. Verify all working vwell, but don’t reboot yet, it will erase all rules. In order to save rules permanently we have to tell service to save rules table
service iptables save
Now it’s time to reboot and verify our rules was saved. Get list of all rules:
