7.3, 8.0, 8.1, … 10 – continuous update releases

With the introduction of the 8.1 release, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations update policy has changed and will change. CAPcargo is on top of it, the 8.1 release was published only two months after the general availability of the corresponding D365FO release.

Microsoft will deliver two major releases per year – April and October – offering new capabilities and functionality. These updates will be backward compatible so your apps and customizations will continue to work post update. Additionally, monthly updates will be added, including application and platform updates. From April 2019 forward, all D365FO customers will need to be on the same version (version 10). Microsoft calls it One Version. Always up-to-date!

It is still a journey to take and the D365FO ecosystem needs to adapt to these changes. The vision to focus on business and not system and data migrations is nevertheless brilliant.

CAPcargo made its homework; the application is available since December 2018 on 8.1.
