November 2013 Update for the Lync 2013 Client

If you applied the October 2013 update for the Lync 2013 client, I'm sure you noticed that calendar-based presence updates broke.  This was a huge headache for me, as I typically block off my calendar with an appointment for the customer I am working with.  Normally, this sets my presence status in Lync to "Busy" so I don't get interrupted (ha!).  With the October 2013 update applied, I had to remember to do this manually - which I often forgot to do.

Well, good news!  A November 2013 update has been released and it fixes calendar-based presence updates, among other things listed below.

As a bonus, we now also get pictures inline with the chat.
