Corrected a small mistake with "Office 365 F3" / "Microsoft 365 F3". These plans include "Retention Labels", the manual application of labels for retention, but not "Retention Policies".
m365maps.com: Added standalone license indicators to the Feature Matrix page to highlight where Office 365, EMS, or Windows features are aligned to a stand-alone SKU. For example, inside Microsoft 365 E3 is Office 365 E3, EMS E3, and Windows E3, so in the Office, EMS, and Windows row headers for the Microsoft 365 E3 column you will find "E3" to indicate that standalone SKU inclusion.
m365maps.com: Minor visual improvements for IE11 users.
m365maps.com: App will now auto-update the page if there is an update available, instead of waiting for the user to close and reopen the page/app.

Added "Exchange Online Kiosk (Calendar)" to "Microsoft 365 F1" to highlight that a calendar is included, but no mailbox rights.
Changed the order of "Self-service password reset" and "Self-service group management" as they were out of alphabetical order in all diagrams.

Updated Microsoft 365 Education diagram to call out that Microsoft 365 A1 Office 365 benefits are derived from the free Office 365 A1 per user license.

The feature "Application Guard for Office" is no longer in preview and is now Generally Available: Link

Removed Windows E3 "Voice, Pen, Touch, Ink, and Gesture" feature tile to create visual space for "Attack Surface Reduction" to be added. This feature is common to all Windows editions and hasn't really got anything to do with licensing, so it seemed like the most obvious one to retire from the diagrams.
Added "Attack Surface Reduction" into the Enterprise Windows license diagrams now that the online documentation explains the difference between Windows Enterprise and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint feature inclusions. Thank you to the many people that provided feedback around ASR's inclusion in these diagrams over the last year. Link

Removed "on a Page" from file names to shorten them for easier navigation on GitHub.
Updated Defender product names in line with Ignite 2020 announcements: Link
Reorganised diagrams to order all boxes alphabetically left-to-right, top-to-bottom, per English language labels. This is intended to help make it easier to locate a feature as they now have a logical order.

Repackaged "Microsoft 365 E5 Compliance" offerings to add "Insider Risk Management", "Information Protection & Governance", and "Discover & Respond" suites. Note that there is functionality that only resides in the suite SKUs and not inside the individual Office 365, EMS, or Windows 10 SKUs. These are known as "suite only" features. Customers that previously bought Microsoft 365 E5 licenses may need a zero-cost add-on to get suite only features.
Renamed all F1 license types to F3 and added new "Microsoft 365 F1". Note: there is no Office 365 F1, only F3 now.
Updated Microsoft 365 F1 EMS rights and clarified that Microsoft 365 F1 Windows does not include KMS activation.

Renamed "Office Applications" to "Office 365 ProPlus" in Business plans to align with enterprise plan naming.
Removed "Skype for Business Plan 2" from Business plans as since September no customer with less than 500 users is eligible for Skype for Business Online. This precludes all Business plans as they only support up to a maximum of 300 users.
Skype for Business Online links in Enterprise plans now link to the service description to ensure customers have the latest information about the Skype for Business Online end of service: Link
Fixed broken link in "PLC Groups" on Office 365 Education plans: Link

Added "Azure Information Protection for Office 365" to Office 365 E3 plans and collapsed "Office Mobile" and "Office Online" into one tile to make room on the diagrams.
Added "Office 365 Cloud App Security" to Office 365 E5 plans. There was some confusion because this was retired as a stand-alone SKU (I.E. you cannot buy it on its own, only as part of Office 365 E5), but I've confirmed it is still part of Office 365 E5.
Updated all Exchange Online links to a plan comparison page as the old links just redirect to Plan 1 details.
Replaced "Office 365 ATP Plan 2" feature "Threat Explorers" link, previous link is now broken.
Replaced Office 365 "Advanced Data Governance" link, previous link now redirects to retention policy information.
Replaced EMS "Microsoft Identity Manager" link, previous link now redirects to generic EMS page.
Updated EMS "3rd Party MFA" link, previous link no longer reaches the correct anchor in the article.
Added "Long Term Servicing Channel" to all Windows E3 diagrams.
Collapsed Windows E3 references to "BitLocker" and "BitLocker to Go" into single "BitLocker & BitLocker to Go" tile to create space.
Collapsed all references to Windows "Azure AD Join" and "Domain Join" into single "Azure AD & Domain Join" tile to create space.
Corrected "User Experience Virtualisation" (UE-V) link, previous link was going to Windows Analytics.
Settled on "Windows Defender Antivirus" instead of "Microsoft Defender Antivirus" when referring to the specific capability in the context of Windows licensing. "Microsoft Defender ATP" does not use the Windows naming because it grants benefits for usage on 3rd party operating systems (i.e. Mac OS).
Replaced "Windows Defender Antivirus" link, previous link now redirects to generic Windows page.
Added "Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP)" to rights not included in "Windows 10 E3 for Microsoft 365 F1", as per Microsoft Product Terms, January 2020.
