Microsoft has just released non-security updates for Microsoft Office 2013 and 2016; a day later than anticipated because of 4th of July in the US.
Only non-security Office updates get released by Microsoft on the first Tuesday of the month. That's the reason why you don't see patches for Office 2007 or Office 2010 as both are on extended support which means that Microsoft supports them with security updates only.
Security updates for Office are traditionally released on the second Tuesday of a month; Microsoft's Patch Tuesday.
Microsoft released two updates for Office 2013, and 12 updates in total for Office 2016. The following lists provide you with information on those.
