ArcGIS Server Annotation Layer Performance Improvement Patch

Summary

This patch improves performance of map service export operations when the map includes annotation layers.

Description

Esri® announces the ArcGIS Server Annotation Layer Performance Improvement Patch. This patch improves performance of map service export operations when the map includes annotation layers. If you have a map service containing annotation layers, and you use that as a map image layer in a web application or in ArcGIS Pro, this patch will improve the draw time for every map refresh. Customers using annotation layers are encouraged to install this patch. This patch deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this patch.
