News about the first email social engineering attack against Office 365 came alongside Microsoft’s announcement that the anti-spam SmartScreen technology is being deprecated. Stay safe people!

Sort of buried in the small type of a blog by the SharePoint Team was a notice that the size of SharePoint Online site collections will increase to 25 TB.
Office Blogs ON Aug 31, 2016
In a post to Office Blogs today, the SharePoint team announced new features for SharePoint Online team sites and Office 365 Groups. The enhancements will begin rolling out to Office 365 First Release customers in early September. If you use Office 365 Groups, be aware that they will all be updated with their own team site when these new enhancements roll out to production.

If you manage an Office 365 tenant and you have one of 4 specific types of plans, you can use PowerShell in SharePoint Online to raise the storage limit, 5 TB at a time, for users who hit the default 1 TB limit. For the rest of us, we'll stay at the 1 TB limit that Microsoft set.

In a post to Office Blogs on July 25, 2016, the SharePoint team announced modern lists, coming soon for SharePoint Online. They're in preview now, but the preview version does not support customizations. Don't panic. Though the SharePoint Team have not stated it specifically, Wictor has compiled statements from the team inferring that classic SharePoint lists will be supported in classic mode.

It's very common these days to have colleagues spread out in various locations, both locally and globally. As such, it can be hard when you're trying to figure out what time it is in their location when you're planning meetings. In Outlook, you can display two time zones in your calendar, which simplifies that task.

This is for those old-timers like me who remember when you had to have the expensive version of Adobe to create PDF files (or you'd install free PDF print drivers to get around that). Microsoft has solved that problem, and now you can save a Word document directly to a PDF format.
