Note: If you install the non-Subscription Update Release onto an R2 Revit, you will probably find that the nice extra things like Site Designer disappear. If this happens to you, reinstall R2 from the Subscription page and your new features should come back. The Autodesk_Revit_2015_R2_UR5.sfx.exe should hopefully not ‘break’ your R2 install.

Dave Baldacchino informs us that this update includes the Hotfix that fixes some nasty non-WYSIWYG bugs (when printing in vector):
Anyway, I also checked that the recent Update 3 (for OneBox)incorporates this hotfix as well, so just skip it altogether and install Update 3 as fast as you can. There are separate downloads for the stand-alone packages.

I guess the fact that we are receiving a significant update to 2013 after getting 2014 will be a further warning to some users to delay the 2014 rollout…
