A very interesting answer by a microsoft employee is available in the technet thread. The important part:

The EnableRoamingFolderHomepages registry key is a supported option to re-enable the Folder Home Page functionality.

So Microsoft says that they were aware of this issue and released the update without any documentation or informing third-party developers like us...

Hi Andreas,

The Technet thread was updated, Gabriel posted a link to
Known Issues page containing two workarounds for the Home Page issue.

The fix with the registry keys, is now the official MS policy until further notice:

Edit: Didn't notice previous post, untill this was added - so just a repeat of what's already been posted

Hi All,

I can confirm the registry key fix works for us as well... however we aren't using WebViewPane in our Outlook addin, any thoughts? We have a button on the Ribbon that's all.

Hello Sean,

I would like to access your PC remotely. Is this possible? If yes, I suggest using TeamViewer; in this case you'll need to send me your session ID and password to the support email address. Please make sure your email contains a link to this topic.
