Key changes with this release:
- OneNote will no longer be sold as a standalone application. OneNote 2016 will be included with the Office Professional Plus 2016 and Office Standard 2016 suites.
- InfoPath 2013 will be the last version of standalone InfoPath. InfoPath 2013 will be included with licenses for Office Professional Plus 2016. InfoPath Forms Services will continue to be supported in the next on-premises release of SharePoint Server 2016, as well as being fully maintained in Office 365.
- Lync on-premises product SKUs will be replaced with new Skype for Business SKUs effective October 1, 2015. These new SKUs represent new versioned offers of the Lync products under the Skype for Business branding. The L/SA and SA SKUs for Lync, which are always versionless, will not be net new for October. Instead, we will be changing the names of these existing SKUs to reflect Skype for Business. Legacy media SKUs that need to retain the Lync branding for those on current versions will remain as-is.
