One issue that users should be aware of is related to Memory-Optimized TempDB. Several access violation bugs have been addressed in this update, but users should be cautious when turning on this feature.
This update also includes several other fixes, such as resolving assertion failures for full text indexes on computed LOB columns, fixing worker stealing issues for encrypted databases, and addressing crashes related to data masking of user-defined functions.
