Office 365 for business updates*:

Document collaboration made easy – Now from Outlook Web App you can open and edit email attachments using Office Online. A new side-by-side view keeps the email thread on the right of the email so you can also craft a response to the conversation, make edits to the document, and send your edited version, all without leaving Outlook Web App.

10x increase in Public Folder limits – We are raising the folder count limit to 100,000 folders. This is a 10x increase over the prior limit as defined in the Exchange service description limits. This enables migration of larger existing public folder hierarchies and increased use of the feature in Office 365.
