Microsoft has released the Lync 2013 Cumulative Update 1 (CU1).  The naming conventions within “Lync” can be a little confusing.  This is a CLIENT update for Lync 2013.

To enable these Lync 2013 updates, make sure both the Lyncloc and Msores packages are installed.  The MS release notes say that this requires a restart of Lync 2013 after you install the update, but I believe a reboot of the client system is required.
