    Same question as Typhoon87, the latest few IE cumulative updates have had no details of any non security updates in the KB artcile.  Have there really been no other fixes?  If there were fixes please document them.

    Broke Coded UItests in VS2010.  Cannot find any information regarding a workaround other than removing update KB2870699.  More information here.  It would be nice for someone at MS to chime in on this Coded UI issue.
