An update has been issued for the Office 365 for IT Pros eBook and the 19 Sept version is now available for PDF, EPUB, and Kindle. See for details. We believe that this will be the last update issued before the Ignite conference next week and that it will take us a little time after Ignite to figure out what updates are required, but we will be working in the background to generate a new update in early October (or earlier).

OK. I lied. We issued another update before Ignite. The current version is now dated 24 Sept 2016. See for change log details.

Following the Ignite conference (and as you'd expect), we have a number of updates for the Office 365 for IT Pros ebook. The new version is now online. See for details of the changes.
